Thank you for not wanting Tops Market to buy the Quality Market chains! Competition will be totally lacking in our Lockport, NY area if Tops takes over our local Quality. It would be great to have Budway or Dashs Market take over the location. I have been positive that once the Tops take over was complete, Tops would close this small Quality Market and leave it empty, leaving us with Aldi (non related) and the other two local Tops Markets as shopping choices. We need a close-by grocery store in this area that will compete with Tops. The now passed away, owner of the independently owned Tops did all he could to keep Wegmans from encrouching on his territory.It worked. we have none here in Lockport. Again thank you for wanting to disallow this take-over! Sincerely, Deborah Drinkwalter
