Renovations of Amherst and Tonawanda locations total $1.9M

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and western Vermont, today announced the completion of a $1.9 million renovation of its Amherst, NY store located at 3035 Niagara Falls Blvd. and two Tonawanda, NY stores locations at 890 Young Street and 150 Niagara Street.

Construction on the three locations began in September, and renovations provide customers with exterior and interior improvements, as well as an expanded selection of products.

“Tops is committed to providing an exceptional shopping experience in our stores, and these three stores were identified as locations in need of remodels,” said Frank Curci, Tops president and CEO. “Each store’s new and improved features allow for an increased selection of products and easier navigation. We are confident shoppers will enjoy the new amenities offered at each location.”

Renovations at all three locations include refinished store fronts, new interior décor, and major upgrades and expansions to the produce, bakery, meat, seafood and bulk departments. Specific changes to the Young St. location include new flooring, a new Carry Out Café seating area, a new hot buffet bar and a new healthy natural and organic department. The remodel of the Niagara St. location includes the addition of a healthy, natural and organic department as well as a new Carry Out Café seating area. The Niagara Falls Blvd. remodel includes the addition of new grab-n-go deli selections and an olive bar.

In celebration of the completed remodel, customers who shop at any of the three locations using their Tops BonusPlus or BonusCard through December 22 will automatically be entered in a sweepstakes to win a grand prize of a three-minute Tops shopping spree, first place prize of an autographed Jim Kelly football with four Buffalo Bills tickets, or third place prize of four tickets to the December 30 Buffalo Bills game.

The three locations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers who shop at the Young St. and Niagara St. locations are able to redeem their fuel rewards right at the pump through Tops Markets’ GasPoints program. Shoppers who use their BonusPlus or BonusCard earn points on qualifying purchases, one GasPoint for every dollar they spend. Every $100 a customer spends equals $.10 off per gallon of Tops gasoline.
