Grand Re-Opening of Thruway Plaza Store Keeps Momentum Going on Chain-Wide Renovations

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – As Tops launches into a season of store renovations, the largest of its kind in years, shoppers in Cheektowaga will be impressed by the nearly $2 million dollars invested into the remodel of the Thruway Plaza location. A Grand Re-Opening at the store, located at 700 Thruway, Plaza, Cheektowaga, NY, will take place on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 2:00 pm.

“As your store manager, my team and I are committed to providing an excellent customer experience,” said Sam Weber. “Tops is dedicated to the community, our associates, and most importantly, our customers and I couldn’t be more proud of all that we have accomplished with this remodel. We think you’re going to love the shopping in the updated store, designed to bring you more selection, more convenience, more organics, and more grab-and-go meals prepared fresh every day, all at a great value.”

With major floor-to-ceiling interior renovations and an updated exterior facade, landscaping, and parking lots, the store remained open during the renovation project so as not to inconvenience shoppers.

New flooring, energy efficient equipment, shopping carts, as well as a whole new interior décor gives the store a refreshed and warm appearance. The updated décor package includes the Pharmacy area which provides convenient service to the community seven days a week. Tops is committed to making it easy for you to get every healthy thing you need in one quick stop and now offers a number of immunizations, is an authorized administer of the Department of Motor Vehicles' Vision test, provides low prescription prices with the GoodRx app, and accepts over 3,000 insurance plans! Shoppers will also find an expansion of Tops’ bakery, and deli/carry out café areas with a remodeled seating area as well as finding a wide selection of natural and organic and gluten-free offerings conveniently integrated throughout the main aisles.

“We also partner with growers from around the corner and around the world to bring you the very best,” said produce manager, Mike Brickel. “We are already starting to bring in homegrown leaf lettuces from Eden Valley Growers, red ripe strawberries will soon be arriving from Browns Berry Patch right here in Waterport, NY, and potted herbs are always in season from DJ Brawdy Farms in Eden, NY.” When in season, Tops is proud to partner with over 200 local growers, many right here in Western New York, to supply Tops with their freshest homegrown fruits and vegetables, so you bring home the best to your family.

Throughout the store, shoppers will see expanded refrigerated produce allowing for more variety and convenience, an increase of antibiotic-free meat and seafood selections, and a much larger selection of beers, including local favorites, in our Brew Market.

Shoppers will also save time by utilizing Grocery Pick-Up and Delivery services.
