Williamsville, N.Y. – Even a global pandemic couldn’t keep Tops away from renovating 17 stores in western New York over the past year. Nestled in the foothills of the Alleghany mountains, Tops is proud to announce a major $1 million renovation project is complete at its store located at 184 South Cascade, Springville, NY. Tops Friendly Markets will virtually cut the ribbon on this impressive 49,000 sq. ft. store on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 11:00 am. To see some of these exciting renovations, visit us in- store, on our facebook page (@TopsFriendlyMarkets) or at our website, Almost everything inside and outside of the store has been touched. From updated new exterior paint with decorative awnings and enhanced facade, new landscaping, energy efficient equipment and LED lighting, to new interior décor. These enhancements give the store a refreshed and warm appearance. Matt Root, store manager for this Tops location said he and his team are working hard every day to make life easier for their shoppers by focusing on affordable, easy-to-prepare meal options. “When it comes to freshness, convenience and variety, you'll find everything here at your newly remodeled Springville store and with all of the expanded products from new specialty desserts, a wider selection of domestic and imported cheeses, to an expanded Brew Market with plenty of local beers like Steelbound Brewery & Distillery and Ellicotville Brewing Company, guests are sure to enjoy all of our enhanced offerings.” He invites the community to visit during the Grand Re-Opening celebration and even have the chance to win some great prizes the whole family can enjoy like $1,000 in Tops gift cards for food and fuel, a pair of club level tickets for a hockey night in Buffalo, or a family ski package to nearby Holiday Valley. As you continue your visit, you’ll feel the freshness in the expanded produce area. Tops partnership with over 200 local growers includes several of our neighbors right here in Western New York including Hofmann Potatoes, Hills Christmas Tree Farm, P & P Seed, and June Miller Farm, 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 specialty cakes and confections for weddings and special occasions as well as an expanded assortment of freshly baked breads and pastries. Throughout the store, shoppers will also see an increase of antibiotic-free meat, plant based options, and sustainable seafood selections, along with a wider selection of certified organic and gluten-free offerings.
