A big thank you to Bob's discount furniture.

Back In January, my store team in South Loop-Chicago met a local firefighter whose firehouse was in need of new furniture for their crews. Members of Engine 18 Chicago Fire took part in a Bob-Tastic shopping trip and got to pick out some great furniture! Read the full story in my #blog!

It’s been a week and there were some good guesses .. but if you guessed the Top photo is Engine18, YOU ARE RIGHT!! But FYI even though it’s a prop, there is a fire pole at both locations .. union calendar is a prop as well.. if you notice they cover up the month and year. Even the bench and corn hole boxes are props..
I’ll post more photos soon

Hey, Merry Christmas to all of you & Happy Holidays 🎄☃️ Stay safe out there. Greetings from Germany 🤗
Thanks to the real Chicago firefighters at Engine 18 for giving us an awesome memory to take back to Iowa with us! I know the TV actors get all the credit but thank you for what you do everyday! #redline
I am a avid patch collector from Alabama. I am asking to see if I could obtain the patches for each apparatus company on the show Chicago Fire. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
