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 fuel station in the central New York area located in Cazenovia, NY. The on-site fueling station located at Tops’ Cazenovia full-service grocery store on Nelson Street is part of Tops’ capital improvement plan and marks Tops 51st fuel station company-wide.

The Cazenovia Tops Xpress location has a state-of-the-art design and boasts four self-serve fuel dispensers offering three grades of highest-quality gasoline: regular, mid-grade and premium, as well as a convenience store. “The Tops Xpress fueling and convenience store concept is an extension of our full-service grocery stores, with an even greater emphasis on convenience and value,” said Mike Patti, regional vice president of Tops East region. “Not only can shoppers fill their tanks, they can easily grab a hot, prepared meal or cup of coffee.”

Tops Xpress offers a wide variety of convenience items including ice cream, beverages, natural and organic snacks as well as freshly brewed Green Mountain coffee. The store also offers fresh, made-to-order, foods to-go including pizzas, salads, and Tops Xpress’ signature foot-long sub for only $5.00.

Patti 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 BonusPlus card 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 BonusPlus card 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 Cazenovia Tops Xpress location is open from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week.
