In the spirit of being fully transparent... please read.

IMPORTANT STATEMENT REGARDING THE OLIVE OIL EXPERIENCE: We are writing this statement because we want to be VERY TRANSPARENT with our customers. As some of you may have heard, we have decided to close just our Downtown Rockford location. While that was one of the hardest decisions to make, we knew it needed to be done as we were much more financially and emotionally stressed from the 2nd location than we could ever hope keep up with. Not all things in business work out the way you plan. We learned that and we are learning FROM it, and looking to the future. We want to make a COUPLE THINGS VERY CLEAR though, as we want to give you confidence in our business.

1. WE ARE NOT CLOSING our Riverside location. We are FULLY committed to our customers, and we are SO APPRECIATIVE of your support as we make this transition. We still REALLY need your support on Riverside. It won't be easy to make this transition, but we are refreshed with tons of new ideas and are working VERY HARD for you to propel ourselves forward. We are NOT giving up, or giving in. This is just a big change. We are thankful and SO GRATEFUL for our customers who have supported us and continued to have faith in us for our years in business. We need you, and we are so happy with you. We are also very thankful for our employees for seeing this through and helping our customers through this transitional time. WE ARE NOT CLOSING. In fact we are gearing up for a bunch of new product that you'll want to come see!

2. We have some really exciting things coming up. Stay tuned for a NEW exclusive Olive Oil and Balsamic coming out around Memorial Day as well as a full store makeover coming up soon.

3. We have some special events, coupons, and products coming up we will be giving people info about through our email newsletter. If you're part of our email newsletter list, make sure you read the emails. If you're not part of the list, sign up here: http://eepurl.com/WUclv

Again, we want to be transparent. Whenever a local store closes, there is always lots of speculation. We want our customers to know we love them and we are going to be KICKING BUTT. We aren't going anywhere. Thank you!

It is with much regret that The Olive Oil Experience will be closing just our DOWNTOWN Rockford location as of 05/24/2017.

We are financially unable to continue operating both locations and the decision unfortunately had to be made to close our downtown store however the store on Riverside Blvd in Loves Park will remain open for all of you. We would like to thank everyone for making our experience downtown Rockford awesome and we are so grateful for all the amazing people we had the pleasure to meet!

Please continue to come for the freshest Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic as well as spices and gourmet products to our Loves Park Location.
