Tops Gas coming to North Syracuse
Just hope prices don't get this high again!
As the mainstream media are slow to cover this, it's a perfect opportunity for me! Tops Friendly Markets will open their third gas station in Onondaga County and fourth in CNY (including their first in Auburn in Cayuga County) at their North Syracuse location, previously P&C from 1994-2010 and Channel Home Store for decades before that. It's being built near the entrance on Brewerton Road (US 11). Later this year is the best I can give as to when the grand opening will be. There could be one in Skaneateles if the former fire house next door is torn down, though people there might not want that and they can go down US 20 anyway. The Camillus one is near a competitor, Hess, so that may not work either. Down W Genesee St to Westvale, the former Name Brand Deals and Genesee Theatre (which should have stayed put in the first place) could be destroyed for a station. Maybe one could even be built at the upcoming Valley Plaza store (another ex-P&C). If Tops take back their Oswego store, Tops Gas could go there too. Across the street at the Fayetteville branch. Even in Cortlandville (which has always been a Tops) or Rome. Watch this space!
