TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS RECEIVES GREATER EAST AURORA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ‘BUSINESS OF THE YEAR’ AWARD
WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, the leading full-service grocery retailer in Western New York, Central New York, including Rochester, and Northwestern Pennsylvania has been awarded one of the Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Business of the Year’ awards.

The awards were presented on September 17 by the Chamber to organizations who continuously step forward to make a contribution to the East Aurora area. Tops has had a presence in East Aurora for over 30 years and employs approximately 230 full and part time associates, most of whom live in the Village of East Aurora. Tops is heavily involved in the American Legion Post 362, is a sponsor of the Roycroft Music Festival, a member of the Business Education Alliance Committee with the Chamber, and is involved with the East Aurora Senior Citizens Center, and FISH of East Aurora.

“Tops has had a long, proud history in East Aurora, and now that we’re an independent, locally operated company, we are better able to serve the needs of our customers by providing them with exceptional value, and an easy shopping experience, while reaching out to make a difference in the communities we serve,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “We are truly honored to be recognized by the Chamber and the East Aurora community.”

Tops was also awarded last October with the Amherst Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Business of The Year award for their commitment to the Amherst and Western New York business community.
