TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS BEGINS CONSTRUCTION OF FIRST FUELING STATION IN THE ROCHESTER AREA
Customers at that location will be able to earn BonusPoints for gas savings

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. - Tops Friendly Markets, the leading full-service grocery retailer in Western New York, Central New York, including Rochester, and Northwestern Pennsylvania, recently broke ground at its first Rochester area fueling station site, located at 2345 Buffalo Road in Rochester.

Customers who shop at the Buffalo Road location will now be able to redeem their Gas rewards points at that fueling site through Tops Markets’ Gas BonusPoints program. Shoppers who use their BonusCard when shopping at that location will earn points on qualifying grocery and pharmacy purchases. Customers earn one Gas BonusPoint for every dollar they spend and can track the points at the bottom of their receipt. Every $100 customers spend equals $.10 off per gallon of Tops gasoline and to redeem, customers just scan their BonusCard at a Tops gas pump. The savings can equal 10, 20, 30 cents or more off per gallon.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our customers, for the first time in Rochester, the added convenience of having a fueling station at our Buffalo Road Tops location,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “Not only will shoppers receive exceptional in-store value, they’re now offered additional savings by filling up at the pump right at the store.” The fueling facility will consist of four, double-sided, 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. Tops also offers beverages, snacks and lottery tickets at the kiosk as an added convenience for customers. The new station is Tops Markets’ 35th fueling facility. Construction is expected to be completed in late May 2010. The Buffalo Road Tops Markets is open 24 hours, and the fueling facility will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., daily.

With over 10,000 associates, Tops is a leading full-service grocery retailer in Western New York, Central New York, including Rochester, and Northwestern Pennsylvania. In January 2010, Tops completed the acquisition of a majority of assets of Penn Traffic, including its 79 supermarkets.
