TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS ACQUIRES ADDITIONAL OFFICE SPACE FOR GROWING WORKFORCE
Williamsville, NY – Tops Friendly Markets today announced that the grocer has reached an agreement with Uniland Partnership of Delaware, L.P. to lease additional office space in Williamsville, N.Y. to house 100 new and existing associates.

In a move made to address the need for more space to house its continuously expanding local workforce, Tops will lease 22,918 square feet of space at 75 Earhart Drive from Uniland Development Co. Approximately 100 associates who will make up Tops’ accounting, finance and IT departments will be working at this new location. Tops recently announced plans to hire new accounting staff as the company reintegrates that function into its operations.

Tops has recently added approximately 7,000 square-feet of space at its main headquarters at 6363 Main Street in Williamsville, in the building it shares with National Fuel Gas Corp.

“As anticipated, we did not have enough space in our expanded headquarters to accommodate the number of new jobs we are bringing to the Tops team and to Western New York,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “As the transformation into a locally operated company progresses, we saw the need to take on this additional space and we are glad to have been able to work with Uniland on this transaction.”

In total, Tops Markets has pledged to add approximately 140 new positions in the area, a commitment that was made in March when Tops decided to keep its headquarters in Western New York.

Tops Markets, LLC, is headquartered in Williamsville, NY and operates 71 full-service supermarkets and five franchise supermarkets. With over 10,000 associates, Tops is the leading full-service grocery retailer in Western New York, Central New York, including Rochester, and Northwestern Pennsylvania.
