Williamsville, N.Y. – We recognize that over the past several 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 our Bradford, PA store for its grand re-opening. Today, Tops is proud to announce a $700,000 renovation project is complete at its store located at 150 Main Street, Bradford, PA. This marks the twelfth 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 48,000 sq. ft. community store on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at 11:00 am. To see some of these exciting renovations, visit us in- store, on our facebook page (@TopsFriendlyMarkets) or at our website, In addition, shoppers will have a chance to win one of many prizes to be given away – fresh prepared family dinners for Thanksgiving or Christmas, free tanks of gas from our on-site fuel station, and even a grand prize of $1,000 in Tops gift cards. There have been a multitude of renovations both inside and outside of the store. From new exterior and interior paint, all new landscaping, to new interior décor and flooring, LED lighting throughout, a more open concept to the stores layout, a new seating area, and even amazing historical pictures of Bradford’s past, these enhancements give the store a refreshed and warm appearance.

Tami Appleby, store manager for this Tops location noted that “I’m so proud of the changes that have been made to enhance our shoppers experience. From the new olive bar and expanded cheese varieties to our new carry out café area and new beer and wine shop-we truly have so much to offer our customers.”

The newly remodeled bakery now offers Vin-Chet gluten-free items as well as new bakery tables and a sweets wall have temptations that will delight. Shoppers will also enjoy the addition of a new butcher block and to stay hydrated there is an expanded section of the store dedicated to waters, seltzers, and sparkling waters. The newest and most exciting addition to the store came this summer with the creation of a beer and wine shop. Tops took to heart the surge in supporting local breweries and enhanced not only the selection of local favorites, but their overall offerings in the Brew Market plus added wine to its selection of offerings featuring eight local wineries. Shoppers may purchase up to 192 ounces of beer with any transaction while doing their shopping and 3,000 ml of wine which equates to two 1.5 liter bottles or four, 750 ml bottles of wine.

Customers will be pleased to find hundreds of different wines from all over the world, with many from our local wineries including Twisted Vine, Mazza Vineyards, Allegany Cellars Winery, & Flickerwood Wine Cellars to name a few.

“If beer and seltzers are more to their liking we offer almost 1,000 different items from Seltzers to Lagers and Ales to the hoppiest IPA's, and all the top local brands you love,” said Jamie Szpylman, category business manager for beer, wine, and snacks for Tops Friendly Markets.

Both beer and wine are available for purchase during normal store hours.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer our shoppers the added convenience and value of purchasing their wine and beer while shopping with us,” said Kristen Hanson, vice president of center store sales and merchandising.
