I agree with the FTC in as residents in the Lansing area and the N/E section of Tompkins County have been denied competitive choices for buying groceries. We have two Top's Friendly Market stores off of Triphammer Rd. in the Village of Lansing right across the the road from each other. I was truly hoping that Price Chopper Grocery was going to come to the former P&C Store on Triphammer Rd.in the Cayuga Mall location. I find that Top's prices are very high, so most of the time I shop for groceries in Cortland. It would be nice to be able to shop close to home particularly in the winter.
