Williamsville, NY – Amid concerns in the world right now about COVID-19, Tops Friendly Markets is still making sure people’s baskets are filled with their essentials including with great prizes like Monopoly wins! Recently, Tops Friendly Markets presented Rochester, NY resident, Luz R. and Theresa M of East Amherst, NY with a $20,000 shopping spree! They are the fourth and fifth people to win one of twenty $20,000 guaranteed shopping sprees being given away during the Tops Monopoly Rip It and Win It game! Luz was completely surprised when she read the ticket while still inside her Tops store. “I shop at the East Ridge Road store in Irondequoit store four to five times a week so I know many of the associates,” said Luz. “I went up to the customer service desk with a huge smile on my face and spoke with a lady whom I’ve known for quite a few years. We looked at the ticket together and we both thought it was real. After receiving a phone call a few days later from someone at the Tops headquarters, I had confirmation of my prize and I was thrilled.” Luz and her husband have been playing the game for the last 10 years, but he could not believe their good fortune either until later that evening when he saw the ticket. “A little while after looking at the ticket, he finally believed it and we were so happy. We plan to spend some of the gift cards now and we really want to help out our children so they will receive some as well,” stated Luz. When reminded that the gift cards are good for both food and fuel, Luz was even happier as “that will go a long, long way.” Theresa M. is such a loyal Tops shopper that she has a “vintage BonusCard.” “There is an immeasurable level of gratitude in my heart. My cherished mother passed away and I had left my job several years ago for the honor to become her personal caretaker so the timing of this is astonishing,” said Theresa.

"Receiving this prize award will now allow me the privilege of being able to, with my Mother's guiding spirit, work to foster programs that prioritize generational in-home family care giving for our treasured elders."
