In other Tops news, the food retailer recently held grand reopenings for two of its Niagara Falls, N.Y., locations. These renovations, totaling more than $3.7 million dollars in enhancements, marked the 38th (7200 Niagara Falls Boulevard) and 39th (4235 Military Road) locations to be updated with a renewed focus on fresh departments over the past four years. The stores will offer new, enhanced services; an expanded assortment of products; and an enlarged perimeter. Additional improvements include new exterior paint with refreshed awnings, landscaping, energy-efficient equipment and LED lighting both inside and out; solar-powered efficiencies; expanded state-of-the-art self-checkouts; renovated restrooms; a pharmacy waiting area; and new interior décor.
During the grand-reopening celebrations, shoppers had the chance to win such prizes as $1,000 in Tops gift cards, a shopping spree at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls USA, or an evening on Third Street, complete with an overnight stay at the Sheraton Niagara Falls. During the ribbon-cutting ceremonies, Tops presented community donations totaling $12,000 back to various local nonprofits.
Both locations also feature the Flashfood program, which enables shoppers to buy items from Tops through the Flashfood app and pick them up in-store at discounted prices while collectively reducing food waste.
