Williamsville, N.Y. – Today Tops was proud to announce a major $2 million dollar renovation project is complete at its Ken-Ton store located at 1740 Sheridan Drive in Buffalo, NY. This marks the fifth renovation in 2019 for the supermarket chain and is part of Tops’ $40 million dollar capital improvement program. Tops Friendly Markets cut the ribbon on this impressive investment on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 11:00 am. Everything from new exterior paint with decorative awnings, new interior flooring, energy efficient equipment, digital menu screens and shopping carts, to a whole new interior décor, give the store a refreshed and warm appearance. From the moment you walk through the doors shoppers noticed an expansion of Tops’ deli/carry out café areas with a remodeled seating are. The bakery now offers a wider selection of detailed custom cakes and confections for weddings, and there is a wider selection of natural and organic and gluten-free offerings conveniently integrated throughout the main aisles. Throughout the store, shoppers also will see an increase of antibiotic-free meat, fresh sushi, sustainable seafood selections and plant based options, and a much larger selection of beers, including local favorites, in Tops Brew Market. “We think you’re going to love the new shopping experience designed to bring you more,” said Patty Bianco, store manager for the Ken-Ton Tops. “One of the additions we’re most excited about is our partnership with SPoT Coffee. It’s great to be able to offer our customers something unique. This 600 square-foot café, with its own separate entrance, will allow our shoppers to pick up a delicious cup of SPoT coffee before shopping, pull up a chair and connect to free Wi-Fi, or sit down at one of the tables to catch up with a friend.” An expanded produce area features a fresh prep cut fruit and vegetable station which is an added convenience.
