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 Marcellus, NY resident, Frances C. with her $20,000 shopping spree. “Originally I was going to go the self-checkout, but decided to go to a register instead,” said Frances. “The tickets had been sitting in my purse for a few days, and initially when I opened them, I thought that there has to be something more or that I was being entered into a raffle. I went back to the store to submit it, and while I had to anxiously wait a few days for it to be validated, they were thrilled and so were we,” added Frances. “We are not gamblers so winning a prize like this is just amazing,” said an excited Frances. “My beloved mom used to like to play a scratch off every once in a while and her picture kept coming up on my Apple phone, so I know she was looking down on me in a favorable way,” added Frances. “We have to eat, we love Tops and $20,000 is a lot of gas and groceries so we’re really pleased,” commented Frances. Shoppers instantly won $20,000 shopping sprees, Tops gift cards, gas points, free food and more! Thanks to many key product vendor sponsors, these savings were above and beyond the everyday great values and we’re excited to pass these offers along to customers. Tops Monopoly Rip It and Win It allowed customers to play every time they checked-out at a Tops Friendly Markets location using their Tops BonusPlus® card. Each purchase transaction received one game ticket and customers also received a game ticket for each participating vendor product purchased. ### About Tops Friendly Markets Tops Markets, LLC is headquartered in Williamsville, NY and operates 157 full-service supermarkets with five additional franchise stores and is the largest private, for-profit employer in Western New York.
