ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Renovations at the Tops Supermarket at Upper Falls Boulevard were officially completed on Tuesday.

The supermarket had remained open while it went through a remodel. There was a ceremony to celebrate its new look.

The newly redesigned store will offer enhanced services, new decor, and an expanded assortment of products. This Tops is the only supermarket in the neighborhood. The area is considered a food desert, meaning it has historically struggled with limited access to affordable healthy food.

“It is the only one that is close to this area. So this community is very faithful to this store because it’s really the only supermarket in the northeast area,” said Eda Perez who directs Ibero Early Childhood Services.

Organizers of the event this morning are also planning to hand out $1,000 gift cards to members of the community.
