If you are tired of going to the cookie cutter box stores, stop into Culture Shock. Culture Shock carries tons of varied items that make great gifts, and a selection of clothing and music that you won’t find at just any old boring store. We hunt down fun, independent, and unique brands that specialize in changing the outlook on style and the world one person at a time, but still stay affordable. Men, women, and kids will find shirts… lots of them; American made ones, funny ones, art/music/tattoo inspired tees and tops, and classic to modern band and movie tees, jeans, belts, purses, shoes, cool housewares, posters, vintage items, local and indie label cds and new and used records and record players, and who knows what else. We love our customers and love getting in new items for them to feast their eyes upon every week, plus we’ve got some great frequent shopper bonuses, and gift cards always available.
We love our community and love hanging out at locally owned businesses for dining and music and getting to know people. The independent businesses know you are customers and fellow business owners trying to make this place thrive and stay unique, and give back to you whenever they can.
Whenever customers or friends are looking for items that Culture Shock doesn’t have, we make sure to send them to another locally owned business to get it. Every neighborhood in Rockford has community based businesses that can help you find the right smoothie, t-shirt, record, sandpaper, guitar, or business service and that’s who we count on, too.
