The store boasts a new prototype design and is part of Tops’ current $13 million investment in its Monroe County stores, the Williamsville, N.Y.-based retailer said.

Frank Curci, Tops president and CEO, described the new Irondequoit store’s layout as “more efficient,” with a better utilization of space and a new, modern look and feel. The store also includes a fueling station, which is expected to open in June. The new store employs 145 associates, which includes 62 new positions.

“For Tops to continue to offer the best possible service to the Irondequoit community, we identified this location as a replacement for our original Ridge Road store,” Curci said. “We are proud that the store’s new and improved features provide an increased selection of products, easier navigation, and an overall better shopping experience and the addition of a new fuel station will give customers yet another convenient way to save by shopping at Tops.”

Tops currently operates 159 full-service supermarkets in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.
