The significant capital investment of over $6 million into five Pennsylvania stores represents more than 225,000 square feet of store space serving customers at locations in Erie, Waterford, Union City and Meadville, Pennsylvania. The large-scale renovation efforts will refresh the store experience and create expanded space for additional fresh food and produce options across the store locations.

Among the substantial enhancements to be made, a new fuel station will be built at the Tops location at 712 West 38th Street in Erie, and new beer and wine options will be added to the store at 1702 East 38th Street in Erie.

“These significant investments are already underway at several locations and will elevate the customer experience and provide expanded access to fresh foods at our local stores. We’re excited to officially re-open three store locations soon and also finish off the additional renovation work,” said Ron Ferri, Executive Vice President of Operations and Distribution for Tops Markets. “At Tops, we constantly evaluate the best ways to serve our local customers and reinvest into our communities. These latest enhancements will help make life a little easier for shoppers by focusing on affordable, easy-to-prepare meal options and a wider selection of products.”
