WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania, today held a grand opening celebration of its newest location in Newfane, NY. In August, 2014, Tops assumed operation of the location, formerly Budwey’s Market.

Located at 2555 N. Main Street in the Town of Newfane, minor renovations provide customers with exterior and interior improvements and an expanded product selection. “This store has been an important part of the Newfane community for many years and we plan to continue the tradition of providing shoppers with an outstanding shopping experience,” said Frank Curci, Tops president and CEO. “Customers will see many of the same familiar faces, providing the exceptional service that they have come to expect.”

Grand opening ceremonies featured the participation of Tops Markets executives, local community leaders, dignitaries, and store associates.

Minor changes were made to the 22,000 square-foot store including new interior and exterior signage and décor, and the integration of Tops brand products onto store shelves. Renovations also include a “wall of value,” and a dedicated space for seasonal items, as well as new shelving and the addition of energy efficient lighting in product cases. At Tops’ Carry Out Café, customers can now find delicious prepared foods in grab and go cases, including the introduction of Tops’ signature fried chicken.

The Newfane Tops Friendly Markets is open seven days a week from 6:00 a.m. to midnight.
