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 fifth fueling station in the Rochester, New York area. The fueling station, located in the Tops Markets plaza at 3507 Mt. Read Blvd. is part of a larger renovation of the Mt. Read Blvd. store, completed in June 2012 as well as Tops’ capital improvement and growth plan.

The new Tops’ fueling station boasts four, double-sided, self-service fuel dispensers, offering three grades of high-quality gasoline: regular, mid-grade and premium.

“We identified the Greece store as an ideal location for our fuel program,” said Frank Curci, Tops president and CEO. “We are confident that more Monroe county residents will take advantage of the savings offered through our GasPoints program, as it gives shoppers another convenient way to save.”

Customers who visit the Mt. Read Tops Xpress fueling station will be able to take advantage of lower prices at the pump through Tops’ GasPoints program. Shoppers who shop at any Tops location and use their Tops BonusPlus or BonusCard will earn points on qualifying grocery or pharmacy purchases. Customers earn one GasPoint for every dollar they spend and can track the points at the bottom of their receipt or online at Every $100 a customer spends equals $.10 off per gallon of Tops gasoline. To redeem the points, customers just scan their Tops BonusPlus or BonusCard at a Tops gas pump. The Tops Xpress store offers an array of convenience items, including beverages, snacks, and the popular Tim Hortons coffee kiosk. The store also offers NYS lottery, Western Union and various automobile maintenance items.

New store renovations provide customers with exterior and interior improvements, and an expanded product selection. Specific changes include overall enhanced décor, new lighting, upgrades to the bakery, the addition of a new bulk department, and the addition of a new healthy, natural and organic department.
