My husband and I would like to take a moment to discuss what a marvelous idea it was for Ruler Foods to open in the east end of Danville.
We visited the store recently, and its low prices and convenient location will make it easier for a lot of the lower-income families to buy quality groceries without having to pay expensive cab fare to shop at other markets.
Not only will families be able to receive a greater value for their dollar at this store, but a community market is a great place for members of the community to meet and get to know one another. A strong community needs to have communication, and Ruler Foods is a great place for people to congregate.
Growing a strong community will be vital for Danville to prosper in the future.
Danville has initiated the opening of several businesses this year; and by far, Ruler Foods is the only business that is a true benefit for the community.
Lisa and Christopher Bey
