WEST ALLIS - Due to the NFC Championship Game between the Packers and Bears on Sunday, a major furniture and electronics retailer in our area will close its doors on the historic gameday.

Colder's four stores will not open its doors to customers on Sunday.

"Colder’s management decided to close its stores on Sunday to give their employees the opportunity to enjoy the game with friends and family," said spokesman Tom Balistreri in a statement.

"Historically, Colder’s has seen a decline in customer traffic during Green Bay Packers games....Colder’s anticipates that the majority of their customers will be watching the game rather than out shopping for furniture, appliances and TVs."
