JustGoods is a not-for-profit fair trade store located in the Midtown District of Rockford Illinois. A project started by Rockford Urban Ministries in 2006, JustGoods is dedicated to promoting ecologically and socially responsible purchasing to better our community.
Our fair trade products come from approximately 25 different countries representing almost all the continents in the world.
The store exists because we have dedicated volunteers who help keep the store running and loyal customers who believe in a better way of doing business that benefits both producers and consumers.
