Plans call for new fueling station, expanded product variety, and store renovation for town’s benefi

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets announced today that it will take over operations at the Wade’s Market site located at 6179 New York Route-96 in Farmington. Wade’s Market is scheduled to close in late October and starting in November, Tops will begin renovating and operating the 52,000 sq. ft. property. There will be a short, closed transition period while Tops’ construction teams renovate the store and it will open prior to Thanksgiving.

“Tops is thrilled to make this investment as the newest neighbor in the town of Farmington,” said Frank Curci, Tops chairman, president and CEO. “We understand that the Farmington community is a unique and historic town, and we look forward to catering to and meeting the distinctive needs of its citizens and this growing community.”

Tops will be offering employment opportunities to the 150 current associates at Wade’s market.

As a part of Tops’ initial multi-million dollar investment, Farmington/Victor residents will soon be able to enjoy a remodeled store and new décor that offers expanded product variety including an extensive natural and organic item selection. Additionally, Farmington shoppers can expect enhanced and renovated produce, deli, and bakery departments as well as full-service meat and seafood counters. Also planned is a new, on-site fueling station to be completed in Spring 2016, allowing customers to take advantage of the Tops GasPoints® rewards program. This new fueling station will help Tops shoppers save money when purchasing gasoline at the station.

“We are proud and excited to have Tops Markets enter Farmington as our neighborhood grocer,” said Geoff Astles, Farmington Town Supervisor. “As a community, we look forward to the new offerings, employment opportunities and services that Tops can bring to our town. Working with the Tops management team, we will continue to position this area as the current and future commercial center of the town.”
