Completed in 2014, the Merrillville, Ind. store was the first in the U.S. to receive the new Verizon prototype design and graphics package. As a first phase, Rockford renovated a vacant tenant space and then moved Verizon Wireless into the space. After the neighboring space was renovated, the wall dividing the space was removed to open the fully completed remodel. Rockford worked with the Verizon team to ensure that business was not affected during the remodel.
