Enhancements Down Every Aisle

Williamsville, N.Y. – We recognize that over these past few months, a lot has changed. Not only in the world around us and how we greet each day but also here at your neighborhood Tops Markets as well. While Tops has adjusted to the times with enhanced safety measures to ensure your well-being, as well as that of its associates, we also have been busy renovating this store for its grand re-opening. Today, Tops is proud to announce a major $2.6 million renovation project is complete at its store located at 3201 Southwestern Blvd., in Orchard Park, NY. This marks the ninth renovation for the supermarket chain over the past year and is part of its $40 million capital improvement plan.

Tops Friendly Markets will virtually cut the ribbon on this impressive 65,000 square foot store on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 11:00 am. We welcome the community to join us on our facebook page (@TopsFriendlyMarkets) or website to see some of the exciting renovations.

Almost everything in the store has been touched and updated from new exterior paint with decorative awnings and an enhanced facade, energy efficient equipment, digital menu screens, and LED lighting, to a whole new interior décor giving the store a refreshed and warm appearance.

From the moment you walk through the doors, you will notice an expansion of Tops’ deli and carry out café areas and a brand new Coffee Bar. Many amenities that Orchard Park residents have grown to love including Boar’s Head premium meats and cheeses, Angus beef, and fresh, in-store made burgers and sausages can now be found here at this Tops location. Jay Knavel, store manager noted that “shoppers will enjoy enhanced offerings including Gloucester Pier sustainably sourced seafood, an increase in our variety of signature floral offerings, and an expanded cheese shop where we’ll now be offering a wider selection of specialty and imported cheeses.”

As you continue your visit, you’ll feel the freshness in the expanded produce area featuring a fresh prep cut fruit and vegetable station. Tops partnership with over 200 local growers, includes several of our neighbor’s right here in Western New York, bringing the freshest local produce straight from the farm to your table. Tops prides itself on carefully selecting, inspecting, and ensuring your produce arrives at the peak of perfection. Tops is also a proud supporter of product grown by New York State farmers who adhere to the New York State Grown and Certified program’s requirements, which includes verification of safe food handling practices and participation in environmental sustainability programs.

The newly remodeled bakery now offers a wider selection of detailed custom cakes and confections for weddings and special occasions as well as an expanded assortment of freshly baked breads and pastries and Tops signature fresh fried donut. Throughout the store, shoppers will also see an increase of antibiotic-free meat, plant based options, fresh on-site sushi, and sustainable seafood selections, along with a wider selection of natural and organic and gluten-free offerings.

To stay hydrated there is an expanded section of the store dedicated to waters, seltzers, and sparkling waters, including many imported varieties. Love local beer? Tops took to heart the recent difficulties that local breweries are experiencing and has enhanced its selection of local favorites in its Brew Market.

Tops is committed to making it easy for you to get every healthy thing you need in one quick stop. The store’s remodel also includes the Pharmacy, now with a new waiting area which allows for more physical distancing, and provides a wide variety of services to the community seven days a week. The Tops Pharmacy accepts over 3,000 insurance plans, is authorized to administer the New York Department of Motor Vehicles' Vision test, and provides low prescription prices with the GoodRx app.

An added bonus for shoppers is the newly updated fuel site conveniently located on the property. As customers shop at Tops, they’ll earn points toward fuel savings. Ready to fill up?
