Tops Friendly Markets is reopening its Cheektowaga, New York, store Tuesday after giving it a $2.7 million renovation, the retailer announced.

The latest renovation marks the chain's 25th such remodel, giving Tops' markets a renewed focus on fresh departments, the company said. 

Tops will celebrate the grand re-opening of the store with a ribbon cutting Tuesday. 

The 80,542-square-foot market has been given a full renovation, with updated décor, including new exterior paint with decorative awnings, landscaping, energy-efficient equipment and LED lighting inside and out, new flooring, expanded self-check outs and renovated restrooms, Tops said in a statement.

The location will also offer enhanced services, an expanded assortment of products, and an enlarged fresh perimeter. Deli and carry-out café areas have been expanded with sandwiches, signature pizzas, prepared salads and other grab-and-go breakfast, lunch and dinner options. In addition, the Tops bakery has an expanded assortment of freshly baked breads, pastries and cakes.

Shoppers will also notice more antibiotic-free meat, plant-based options, sustainable seafood selections and a larger selection of certified organic and gluten-free offerings. There is also a section of the store that offers waters, teas, mixers and sparkling waters.

Another highlight of the store’s remodel is its pharmacy, equipped with a new waiting area. The Tops pharmacy provides a variety of services including immunizations such as Covid -19 booster shots, shingles and flu shots, and the pneumonia vaccination. Tops is also an authorized administrator of the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles' Vision test.
