110 South Church

— Waterloo, Monroe Co. Ill., Laid Out in 1818 —

After 65 years, 44 being at the 110 S. Church Street building, it was a sad ending to the Schmitt family grocery stores.

Next to move into the building was Clark's Country Oaks. Tom & Becky Clark's furniture store occupied the property from 2004 until August of 2012, when Tom decided to relocate his business to South Main Street.

The building then returned to a grocery store, as Ron and Pat Caywood and Robin Seidle opened Billiger Foods, which offered food to the community for lower prices, which is what the partners believed was needed in the harsh economy of the day. Indeed the name Billiger was chosen as it's meaning is literally "cheaper" in the German language. Unfortunately Billiger's lasted for just a year.

In 2013, the property was brought by its current owner, William Nobbe and Company, Inc., a family-owned John Deere farm equipment dealer and the building was renovated to become their corporate sales office.
