Derby, NY - Martin's Super Food Store, located at 6914 Erie Road in Derby, will hold its official grand opening on Wednesday, December 7. While the store has been open to Derby customers since October 5, all of the new amenities are now completed. The demolition of the old Tops Markets store is now completed and resulted in the creation of 130 parking spaces in front of the new Martin's store for a total of approximately 450 spaces. Fuel pumps have also been constructed.

In addition to all of the new amenities customers have been able to experience inside the 65,000 square food store, Martin's has finished the installation of eight fuel pumps outside of the store as an added convenience to customers. Each contains a Pay-at-the-Pump feature. A variety of automotive and convenience items, in addition to free air, gas mitts to keep hands clean, waterless hand soap, are also available.

"Our customers have been very receptive to the expanded selection of items and the increased emphasis on technology and convenience since Martin's opened its doors this past October," Michael Nugent, store manager, commented. "With the project now officially completed, I hope customers will find the addition of more parking spaces and fuel pumps another way Martin's is committed to providing its customers a more convenient shopping experience."
