A new grocery store is open for business in Godfrey. The long awaited Ruler Foods officially opened for business on Thursday at Monticello Plaza, in the same space once occupied by a Park n Shop grocery store, before it closed several years ago.
A Hoods outlet store occupied the space most recently before it also closed. It’s been about a two-year process to bring the Ruler Foods store to Godfrey, which is part of the Kroger family of stores, and the grocery store occupies about two thirds of the old grocery footprint. The north end of the store will be a closeout store for RP Lumber. The Ruler Foods in Godfrey is the 7th store that has recently opened in the St. Louis area.
