SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The city of Syracuse has won one battle in its ongoing struggle to insure city residents have access to grocery stores. Even as it struggles to find a replacement for a Wegmans that has shut down on the city's northside, City Hall was able to announce the conclusion of a three year effort to find a new grocer for the Valley Plaza on the city's southside.
It was three years ago that P&C closed a store that served thousands of customers in the Valley area. It took a combination of incentives, along with a strong sales pitch by the city's mayor to draw in Tops Supermarkets to open a new store.
“We are here today to say that we are going to be able to make sure that pedestrians, that neighborhood people, have access to fresh fruits and groceries. And to make sure that they can continue to have the healthy lifestyle and the amenities that make living in a city so terrific,” said Mayor Stephanie Miner.
The new Tops is expected to be open for business sometime in November.
