“I guess we’ll have to start another online petition to replace this one,” said a neighborhood Swedish man and Trader Joe’s enthusiast, Thorne Salssen.

The chain was being petitioned the idea to move into the old Hilander / Schnucks grocery store, located in the historic five points neighborhood. The neighborhood is known for its Swedish immigrant transplants with old world money hidden in modest homes with high property taxes.

In recent years, the neighborhood has made a financial transition from old world Swedish money to new world Swedish money to help keep Rockford poor everywhere else in town through private real estate transactions and family trust funds.

Christina Fransborger, a single Swedish woman in the five points neighborhood said, “I believe The Rockford can overcome such negativity placed upon our proud neighborhood by Trader Joe’s. One day we’ll have an Aldi’s grocery store in the five points neighborhood that my Swedish brethren can spend our old world money at.  The Rockford will have the last word.”
