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.
