Williamsville, NY… Officials from Tops Markets, LLC and National Fuel announced today that they have finalized a deal for National Fuel to occupy a portion of Tops headquarters facility at 6363 Main Street, Williamsville. Terms of the lease have not been disclosed.

While National Fuel still has several steps to complete in order to finalize the project, plans call for Tops to occupy approximately 50,000 square feet of space on the first floor of the building. National Fuel will occupy the remaining 150,000 square feet of space, including half of the first floor and the entire second floor of the building.

Tops has had excess space available in the building for several years and therefore, has been looking to lease a portion of the building since early 2001. "The building was designed to sub-divide, and since we have excess room, it is certainly the right thing to do," stated Frank Curci, president and CEO of Tops. "We are very fortunate to have found a company such as National Fuel with which to share our building."

Ciminelli Development Co. originally constructed the building for Tops in 1994. Ciminelli Real Estate Corp served as leasing agent for the building.

Tops Markets, LLC is one of six retail operating companies under Ahold USA, one of the leading supermarket operations in the U.S. Tops currently operates 159 Tops Friendly Markets, 205 convenience stores under the Wilson Farms, Sugarcreek and Tops Xpress banners, and 9 B-Kwik Food Markets in New York, Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio.
