Tops Friendly Markets announced Wednesday that it will address the concerns of the most vulnerable population to COVID-19, seniors 60 years of age and older.


“We've heard you and therefore, effective Thursday, March 19, and until further notice, Tops will open its doors for this select audience only, allowing them to shop from 6 – 7:30 a.m. every Tuesday and Thursday,” the company stated. “Rest assured we will not be asking for identification as we trust the community will not abuse this privilege.


“Tops also has curbside and pickup delivery as an alternate shopping solution. Please visit Topsmarkets.com to shop online.”


Beginning Wednesday, Tops changed its hours of operation at most stores from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. to restock and continue to maintain the increased sanitation levels in stores.


Stores that typically open later and close earlier will maintain their existing hours of operation. This also pertains to Tops Fuel sites. These revised hours will be in effect until further notice.
