Tops Friendly Markets, the leading full-service grocery retailer in Western New York, Central New York, including Rochester, and Northwestern Pennsylvania, is proud to announce Luz Hillman as the winner of $5,200 in free groceries and Joan Edwards as the winner of an LCD HD TV valued at $1,500 as part of the new customer Monopoly Collect and Win game that is based on the world-famous Hasbro board game, MONOPOLY.

Tops honored Ms. Hillman and Ms. Edwards, who were given winning tickets after making a purchase inside the Tops Friendly Markets location at 5827 S. Transit Road, Lockport, NY with a formal presentation on Friday, February 19th. They were the fifth and sixth high level prize winner since the game started on January 10.

The game is the first of its kind for a grocer in the area and allows customers to play every time they checkout at a Tops Markets location. Customers can play the game by obtaining a free board at any Tops Markets location. At the checkout, one game ticket is given which includes four game markers and one savings coupon. As customers collect game ticket markers, they are placed on the MONOPOLY board. A prize is awarded once a section is completed on the individual game board. Customers have the opportunity to earn bonus game tickets by purchasing specially marked products throughout Tops Markets locations.

“We are excited to offer our customers the chance to win such fabulous prizes just for shopping with us. With many other great prizes still unclaimed, we look forward to announcing more winners soon” said Diane Colgan, Vice President of Sales Development and Marketing.

Among the top prizes are a $200,000 mortgage, 2010 Cadillac SRX, and a seven-day trip for two on Carnival Cruise Lines. Other great prizes include a $15,000 room makeover, $2,500 in free gasoline, and $500 Tops Markets gift cards. There are also eight more chances to win $5,200 in free groceries for a year and fifteen more chances to win more LCD TV’s. The game runs through April 10, 2010.
