Tops is on their third store in Cortland, NY…not three stores, but the third, progressively larger store. I had shopped Wegmans in Syracuse, and was quite pleased with the new larger Tops. We used to make special trips to Syracuse for exotic items and ethnic bits, but Tops pretty well covers it these days.
I can do without the mega-mall department store shops like the big Wegmans. I don’t really shop, I buy. I make a list, get in, get out.
The store my mom used to shop in when I was a kid, originally a Grand Union, now a P&C, seems like an over-grown convenience store now. We only go there for emergencies, and basics.
