Williamsville, N.Y. – Yesterday, Tops Friendly Markets awarded a lucky Penn Yan, NY resident with the second chance sweepstake prize, the final of its 10 guaranteed car prizes (valued at $25,000) in its customer MONOPOLY Rip It and Win It game.

James Trezise of Penn Yan, NY is the lucky recipient of this amazing prize after shopping at the Tops located at the 321 Liberty Street, Penn Yan, NY simply by entering in Tops second chance Monopoly sweepstakes. John was on hand yesterday at the store to receive his prize and celebrate with Tops team members and fellow community members. “When I got the ticket I started laughing,” Jim first told Tops officials when they called to tell him he won. “I kinda of like this prize,” he said!
