Williamsville, N.Y. -- Tops Friendly Markets has officially unveiled 12 former Grand Union stores in eastern and northern New York under the Tops banner at grand re-opening ceremonies.
The new Tops branded stores include stores in Saratoga, Warrensburg, Warren, Franklin, Essex, Clinton and Fulton counties.
"The entire Tops team has worked very hard to that ensure our new store customers will have a more enjoyable shopping experience as they see the many changes in the setting, amenities and an increased variety of products that our neighborhood stores will offer," said Frank Curci, Tops' president and CEO. "And we want to continue the tradition of giving back and being active members of the local community."
Actual store improvements vary by individual store, Curci said, but all provide a wider variety and selection of favorite brand products, interior and exterior renovations as well as refinished store fronts.
The 12 Grand Union stores were part of a 21-store acquisition that Tops entered into an agreement for in July 2012.
