WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. –Today, Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, western Vermont, and north central Massachusetts, held a ribbon cutting celebration for the Grand Opening of its Angola, NY store. The new store, located at 9049 Erie Road, Angola, NY was formerly a Shurfine Grocery Store. “When the opportunity to operate in the Angola community became an option for us, we knew that a Tops Markets would be a perfect fit,” said Frank Curci, Tops’ chairman and CEO.

“This store is ideally located, has great potential, and we believe we can offer customers an exceptional shopping experience,” said Frank Curci, chairman and CEO for Tops Friendly Markets. “Angola residents will be able to choose from a larger variety of national and local brand products, while saving time and money.”

Significant renovations were made to this 20,600 square foot location including a refreshed interior décor as well as expanded product selection. Throughout the store, shoppers will see expanded refrigerated produce allowing for more variety and convenience, an enhanced in store cut fruit and vegetable program, and much more organic as well as an increased meat and seafood selection.

Local residents will be pleased to also find a wide assortment of seasonal items including coolers, ice, charcoal, and firewood perfect for their day at the beach. Delicious marinades for steaks, fixings for summer picnics, and sweet treats to make the ideal camp side S’mores are all in store at the new Angola neighborhood TOPS.

“I am very proud, not only of the renovations to the store, but of the dedication and efforts shown by all of our Tops associates," said store manager, Jeff Talarczyk. “We promise to offer our community a wide variety of their favorite products in addition to our new Tops Brand products all at an exceptional value.”

Additionally, the Tops philosophy of Neighbors Helping Neighbors took center stage during today’s ribbon cutting where five local organizations each received a $500 Tops gift card; the Angola Volunteer Fire Department, Cradle Beach, Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore, Most Precious Blood, and Operation Good Neighbor. This is just one of the many ways Tops gives back to the community to say thank you for their service.
