Store remodels are coming for Williamsville, N.Y.-based Tops Markets.

The company is putting $40 million toward a capital improvement program that includes “several major floor-to-ceiling interior renovations and updated exterior facades, landscaping and parking lots,” according to a news release.

Tops will be expanding its fresh departments and providing a large, integrated selection of natural, organic and gluten-free offerings.

“Throughout our stores, shoppers will see expanded refrigerated produce allowing for more variety and convenience, new offerings including an in-store cut fruit and vegetable program, and an increase of antibiotic-free meat and seafood selections,” John Persons, president and chief operating officer, said in the release. “We’re also looking to bring a new coffee shop and comfortable sit-down area to a few of our locations, which is an exciting addition for our shoppers.”

Tops is also investing in expanding store pickup service to more locations.

“By the end of May 2019 Tops will have 20 stores that will offer grocery pickup service to its customers, with expansion into our other major markets on the horizon,” Persons said in the release. “When we create an even more exceptional shopping experience and help make grocery shopping simple, friendly and easy, our shoppers benefit at the end of the day.”

The first phase of the improvements will be at the following locations:

  • 1600 Cedar Street, Elmira, NY
  • 156 Church Street, Saranac Lake, NY
  • 700 Thruway Plaza, Cheektowaga, NY
  • 12775 Broadway, Alden, NY
  • 128 W. Main Street, Leroy, NY
  • 1740 Sheridan Drive, Buffalo, NY
