TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS BREAKS GROUND ON THIRD CENTRAL NEW YORK FUELING FACILITY
Williamsville, NY – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania, recently began construction on its third central New York-area fueling station, located at the 3803 Brewerton Road, Airport Plaza Tops location.

“We identified our Airport Plaza store as an ideal location for the addition of a fuel site,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ president and CEO. “This new Tops fuel station gives our customers another convenient way to save by taking advantage of significant discounts both in-store and at the pump.”

All Brewerton Road customers will be able to redeem fuel rewards right at the pump through Tops Markets’ GasPoints program. Shoppers who use their Tops BonusPlus or BonusCard earn points on qualifying purchases. Customers earn one GasPoint for every dollar they spend and each qualifying grocery or pharmacy dollar is accumulated at the bottom of their receipt. For every $100 spent at a Tops store, shoppers using their BonusCard get 10 cents per gallon of gas off the next time they fill up, and to redeem points, customers just scan their Tops BonusPlus or BonusCard at a Tops gas pump. There's no limit to how many Gas Extra Rewards points a customer can earn. Points that have been earned at participating stores that don't have an on-site gas station can be redeemed at other stores offering gas. In addition, for every manufacturer’s coupon used, shoppers can receive an additional 10 BonusPoints, up to 100 points, equaling an additional$.10 off a gallon of gas per shopping trip. The Brewerton Road 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 Tops Xpress convenience location. Within the Tops Xpress, customers will also be able to purchase snack food items, beverages, NY state lottery instant and on-line games, automotive maintenance items, such as windshield wiper fluid and motor oil, local and national newspapers, and other seasonal items.

Construction on the new fueling station is expected to be completed in September 2012. The new site will be Tops' 46th fueling facility company-wide. The Airport Plaza 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 more than 14,000 associates, Tops is a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania.
