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 begun construction of its newest fueling station to open at the Village of Hamburg store located at 6150 South Park Ave. Scheduled to open in April of 2010, the fueling station is a result of Tops’ $150 million capital investment plan.

The fueling facility will consist of four self-service fuel dispensers, offering three grades of high-quality gasoline: regular, mid-grade and premium. Customers will have their choice of paying at the pump using a major credit card, or at the walk-in kiosk located by the fuel pumps. For their convenience, customers will also be able to purchase on-the-go conveniences such as snack food items, beverages, tobacco products, and automotive maintenance items such as windshield wiper fluid and motor oil.

In April of 2009, the store hosted a grand re-opening after a multi-million dollar renovation, providing customers with expanded product selection as well as interior improvements. Customers now have over one thousand new product offerings including expanded ethnic, chef-inspired, and natural and organic items.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the added convenience of having a fueling station at our Village of Hamburg location,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “Not only do our Hamburg shoppers receive exceptional in-store value at a beautifully renovated facility, they’re offered additional savings and convenience by being able to fill up right at the store.”

All customers who visit the Village of Hamburg Tops Markets will soon be able to redeem their fuel rewards at the Hamburg fueling site through Tops’ Gas BonusPoints program. Shoppers who use their BonusCard when shopping at their neighborhood Tops Friendly Markets earn points on qualifying grocery and pharmacy purchases. Customers earn one Gas BonusPoint for every dollar they spend and can track their points at the bottom of their receipt. To redeem, customers just scan their BonusCard at a Tops gas pump.

Tops Markets in the village of Hamburg is open 24 hours, and the fueling facility will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week.
