Outstanding Home Decor Business in Rochester is Closing after 44 Years
Long-standing Rochester Business is Closing after 44 Years
A business that has been serving the Rochester, Minnesota area for over 44 years has announced that they are closing.
Northern Lights and Furnishings, located at 511 Northern Hills Drive NE in Rochester, Minnesota, has been providing its expertise in lighting design and home furnishings for over 44 years. According to the multiple signs posted in front of the building and an e-mail that I received, the store is starting its retirement/store closing sale on Thursday, June 10th, and will be giving away 10 fantastic prizes at the end of the sale.
"We thank the wonderful friends and customers we have been able to serve for over 44 years." - Greg Gill, Northern Lights and Furnishings

I don't think any of us had a clue what the next 400+ days would be like living through this pandemic. Unfortunately, during that time frame, we lost many businesses in Rochester and you can see a good chunk of the stores that closed their doors forever.
