Tops Markets or "Tops" intends to close 10 underperforming stores by November of 2018.

Tops Markets or "Tops" intends to close 10 underperforming stores by November of 2018.

The closures are part of the company's financial restructuring process, a process to help the company emerge from bankruptcy.

Five of those underperforming stores are located in Rochester.

Below is a list of all the Rochester locations that are set to close:

710 Lake Avenue, Rochester, NY

175 N. Winton Rd., Rochester, NY

6720 Pittsford/Palmyra Rd., Fairport, NY

33 Forgham Street, Lyons, NY

381 Hamilton Street, Geneva, NY

The company intends to file a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The company is seeking authority to assume the leases of continuing stores, reject leases and conduct store closings at the 10 underperforming locations.

"The vast majority of our stores are profitable and we are seeing strong customer support continue to drive growth in these locations," stated CEO of Tops, Frank Curci. "That said, there are a few stores that are not performing to our standards, due to a number of factors including location, store size, lack of visibility, and lease costs."

The company's public and media relations manager, Kathy Romanowski-Sautter, left the below statement following Thursday's closure announcement.

"We recognize the important role that our associates play in driving our success and serving our customers and our communities. We will treat affected associates fairly and with the respect that they deserve. Importantly, we have many openings across our chain of stores and to the extent possible, we will work with impacted associates to find them placement at nearby store locations.”
