WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Yesterday, Tops welcomed its neighbors to join them for an Open House as it celebrated the community on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at its Jefferson Ave. location (1275 Jefferson Ave., Buffalo, NY). The event kicked off with a tour with local dignitaries from 4:00-5:00 pm followed by a community Open House from 5:00-7:00 pm where its guests enjoyed an evening of live music provided by The Lyfe Band, Buffalo’s own Singing Cops, family friendly activities, giveaways, and food samplings.

From face painting provided by The Smiling Face Painter, balloon animals from Burst of Balloons and Paw Patrol Characters to a special kid’s activity area and a prize wheel with giveaways, there were plenty of hands on activities for the whole family. Guests enjoyed a wide variety of TOPS BRAND products available for sampling, in addition to Perry’s Ice Cream, Sunny D beverages, and sweet treats from Tops bakery including chocolate mousse cups filled with fruit and Tops celebratory sheet cake to name a few. Each guest even received a specially wrapped gourmet cookie. Delicious savory flatbreads, seafood salad, and some Yancy’s Fancy’s Cheeses were also available for tasting.

During the event Tops also presented Tops gift cards to support local organizations in the community including True Bethel Baptist Church, Women Warriors Organization, Anitoch Baptist Church, C.O.P.S.S., Group Ministries Food Pantry, and the Police Athletic League (PAL).

“We are proud to be an integral part of this community, along with our five other Tops city locations, and want to welcome our neighbors to celebrate together for an evening of fun, food, and fellowship,” said David Christopher, store manager for Tops. “We’ve recently invested over $200,000 into the store and with it comes great improvements and conveniences for our customers that we think they will appreciate.”
