Tops reopens flood-damaged store in Owego, N.Y.

Store closed due to flooding from Tropical Storm Lee

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. — Tops Friendly Markets reopened a flood-damaged store in Owego, N.Y., on Sunday, the supermarket chain said.

Tops announced last week that it would open the store, which it had to close due to "significant" flood damage from Tropical Storm Lee, which caused severe flooding in the city.

"The work to be done to repair the store was substantial, but the decision to re-open the Owego store was an easy one," Tops president and CEO Frank Curci said. "We felt that it was important to get up and running as soon as possible so we could help our neighbors rebuild and regain what they lost."
