Ruler Foods building takes shape

Construction continues on the new Ruler Foods store at 1703 North Belt West. The store is at the corner of North Belt West and 17th Street where Bel-Air Bowl used to be.

The Belleville City Council agreed in February 2013 to provide JayC Food Stores, parent company of Ruler, with up to $200,000 in incentives for demolition of the old bowling alley.

The vote was 7-7 with Mayor Mark Eckert voting to break the tie.

JayC Food Stores is owned by Kroger.

In January, the council agreed to let the company put up a building with a metal facade rather than brick.
