TOPS MARKETS, LOCAL COMMUNITY CELEBRATES GRAND OPENING OF NEW HENRIETTA TOPS LOCATION
$5 million Store Continues Tops’ Strong Investment, Customer Commitment in Monroe County

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and northern Vermont, today held a grand opening celebration to mark the completion of its brand new 55,000-square-foot grocery store at Frontier Commons Plaza, replacing the company’s original store on Jefferson Road.

Grand opening ceremonies featured the participation of Melissa Dillon, store manager, Frank Curci, Tops president and CEO, the Henrietta store team, and local dignitaries and community leaders. Community donations were made to local not-for-profit organizations including Henrietta Fire Department, Henrietta Public Library, Henrietta Recreation Department & Youth Bureau, Meals on Wheels, and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

“In order to continue to provide the best possible service to the Henrietta community, we identified this location as a replacement for our original Jefferson Road store,” said Frank Curci, Top president and CEO. “We are proud that the store’s new and improved features provide an increased selection of products, easier navigation, and an overall better shopping experience and the addition of a new fuel station will give customers yet another convenient way to save by shopping at Tops.”

The new Henrietta store boasts Tops’ new-store prototype as well as a fueling station, which is scheduled to open at the end of January. The new store provides customers with updated interior decor, an expanded product selection and many new, improved departments. Specifically, the new store boasts an upgraded produce department, full-service meat and seafood and bakery with a wide variety of fresh baked goods. Henrietta shoppers will enjoy an enhanced healthy, natural and organic section and expanded bulk section as well as the Marketplace Café’ where they can find delicious prepared foods including an olive and chicken wing bar, fresh salad bar, Panini case, and hot buffet as well as a seating area with Wi-Fi for customer convenience. When the Henrietta fueling station opens at the end of this month, customers will be able to save at the pump with Tops’ GasPoints program. Shoppers who use their BonusCard 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 BonusCard at a Tops gas pump.

The original Henrietta store, located at 1100 Jefferson Road remained open during the transition and all Tops associates transitioned to the new store when it officially open at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 15.
