Q. My wife and I are having quite the disagreement! I recall a Grant's store on the EAST end of Belleville while my wife says I'm nuts.

Not sure what your question was? I barely remember the store in Granite City but was too young to remember much about it. Or, if there was one in Belleville .. tried searching for their locations and there were over a 1000 but I have no idea if a Belleville store existed or not.
