BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- Tops Friendly Markets has announced that the company will assume operation of the Jubilee Foods store located at Kensington Avenue and Harlem Road in Cheektowaga.
Jubilee Foods has elected not to renew their lease on the property and had planned to close the store in late May. Tops Markets has entered into an agreement to lease the location and take over operations of the store.
In a release from Tops Friendly Markets, Tops CEO Frank Curci said, "We pride ourselves on being a neighborhood grocer and are always looking for ways to best serve our customers in the western New York community".
“This store is in an ideal location, has great potential, and we believe we can offer customers a better shopping experience while also helping to execute our company’s overall growth strategy.”
The Cheektowaga location will close at the end of May to allow for an extensive remodel and will reopen in the fall as Tops Friendly Markets. The current employees at the facility will be given the opportunity to apply for continued employment with Tops.
