TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS OPENS DEWITT FUELING STATION; SECOND IN CENTRAL NEW YORK
New off-site fueling station will give more CNY shoppers access to GasPoints Program

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania, today announced the official opening of its second fueling station in the central New York area located in DeWitt, NY. The off-site fueling station located a block from Tops’ Dewitt full-service grocery store on East Genesee Street is part of Tops’ multi-million dollar capital improvement plan.

The Tops Xpress location, formerly occupied by a Citgo fueling station boasts four self-serve fuel dispensers offering three grades of high-quality gasoline: regular, mid-grade and premium, and a 1,840 square-foot convenience store.

“The Tops Xpress store concept is an extension of our full-service grocery stores, with an even greater emphasis on convenience and value,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “Not only can shoppers fill their tanks, they can grab a hot, prepared meal or cup of coffee all at an incredible value.”

Tops Xpress offers a full array of convenience items, including frozen foods, beverages, snacks, and the popular Tim Hortons coffee kiosk. The store also offers a wide variety of made-to-order, fresh foods to-go including pizzas, salads, and Tops Xpress signature subs.

Curci also commented on the popular Tops’ GasPoints rewards program. “At participating locations, customers who shop at Tops earn GasPoints,” he said. “The addition of this new fuel station and Tops Xpress store gives central New York customers yet another convenient way to save by shopping at Tops.”

Shoppers who use their BonusCard when shopping at their neighborhood Tops Friendly Markets earn points on qualifying grocery and pharmacy purchases. Customers earn one GasPoint for every dollar they spend and can track their points at the bottom of their receipt. Customers can redeem these points by just scanning their BonusCard at a Tops gas pump.

Tops opened its first CNY on-site fueling station as part of a major renovation at its Baldwinsville store in late July 2011.

The Dewitt Tops Xpress location is open from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week.

Tops Markets, LLC, is headquartered in Williamsville, NY and operates 133 full-service supermarkets – 127 company-owned and six franchise locations. With more than 14,000 associates, Tops is a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania.
