Why not? If downtown wants to make a comeback, this is the step to go. Very profitable idea. I personally would prefer wegmans downtown, but you can't go wrong with tops.

Uh, good luck with a store full of homeless negroes. I wonder how many security guys they will have to employ to keep the homeless jigs from stealing the place blind, just a thought!
probably the same amount they will need to stop those homeless greasy looking drunk piss smellin crackers from stealing......
now what? Every see those smelly beggars at the intersection of St. Paul/Cumberland just before the inner loop?

Oh puhlease. rePIGpublican. You have GOT to be kidding. How'd that fast ferry work out for us? How about the High Falls fiasco? Give me a break. And Stanky Pants, this is the very last time I will respond to you, until I see you go after the racist pieces of crap that constantly trash white people on here. Seems to me you are beyond hypocritical. "Unacceptable"? Bwahahaha. Okey, dokey. It IS a social issue. Just ask Mr. Danny Wegman why they pulled out of Midtown and South Ave. If he was honest, he'd tell you. THEFT. Period. End of subject.

Dont worry about who i go after, you need to watch what you say on here and stop starting trouble on here. You are very opinionated. Everyone else on this thread is ignorant.

Hoes gots to eat too, I guess. It seems like a lot of the addicts I see are real skinny, not buying much food. I see addicts of many races. The puerto rican chicks on heroin crossing the bridge near maplewood park and the hawkeye building looked real sick, the skin and eyes sallow. The skinny white crackhead told us he owned the hawkeye building, as he picked cigarette butts out of the ash can. The one legged black guy panhandling sure got around fast, I saw him in that area on driving park, then I drove across town 20 min away and he was already there! Like freakin magic. Good luck downtown, better lock the pharmacy real good, bulletproff glass the whole deal. Maybe Tops will be the turning point, then again, maybe pigs will fly.

They should skip the rotisserie chicken, you know how to cook it to sell in this location, right? Stock up on 40 ouncers too. Demographics dictate your business model. No shame in it, just embrace it and don't get violent. It is not quite to the level Ireland is, everyone there is actually drunk and carrying a beer or whiskey, and I love to visit! To attain that level of actual stereotype, every black person in Rochester would have to carry a watermelon under their arm. Just sayin'

But really, can't we sell the stuff that will really appeal to the audience without getting bent outta shape? I saw white people eating at KFC too. And black people at Olive Garden. Just sayin'

Humans eat food period. Why is certain food limited to etnicities? White people love fried chicken and black people love italian food. I just love how this turned way off topic.

It is part of the fun! So, Tops opening a store, nice to have some jobs here. If they train employees to have great customer service, it may do well. I hope they can keep the store clean looking, some older grocery stores just look dingy and decrepit. If it is designed well and built well and maintained, it might be kinda nice. The shoppers need to respect the place too.
