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 Auburn, NY resident, Paul K. and David D. of Niagara Falls, NY with their $20,000 shopping spree $5,000 in groceries for a year prizes respectively! Paul received the good news from his six-year old daughter who loves to open the tickets. “She knew it was a winner and was excited, but wasn’t sure what the $20,000 really meant,” said Paul. “I have played for a long time and I think the biggest prize I’d previously won was dryer sheets so this evens out very nicely,” remarked Paul. “We then called everyone I could think of to share the good news,” stated Paul. While he wasn’t sure who would be staffing the grill or what they’ll do with entire $20,000, he commented that he believes a really nice Father’s Day cook out is in their future. The $5,000 top prize for the Tops Monopoly Online game was awarded to David D. of Niagara Falls. “I was at work when my wife entered the tickets online. She called me and I thought she was joking,” said David. “We feel blessed to have won this prize and it will help soften the blow of the college tuition bill that just came in for my son,” added David. “We are also really hoping to fill the freezer. My wife is a coupon queen so we will make this go a long way,” stated David. When asked what the biggest prize he’d ever received before, he said “I came in second place in a race when I was in second grade so this truly is a big deal.” Shoppers instantly won $20,000 shopping sprees, Tops gift cards, gas points, free food and more!
