Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Tops Markets LLC, a limited liability company, Morgan Stanley Capital Partners V U.S. Holdco LLC, a limited liability company, and The Penn Traffic Company, a corporation. FTC File No. 101 0074
I am upset the FTC is ordering Top's to sell the Quality market in Lockport, NY. Yes, it would be nice to have another retailer in the area, but if no one is interested Top's should be able to keep the store. It should be remembered Top's is a large retailer with sales that are advertised regionally, not just locally in Lockport. They do not raise their prices in Lockport due to not having competition. Regionally they have plenty of competition between Wegmans and Walmart so their prices have to stay in line. Without this store a large portion of Lockport and the Gasport area will be without a store, pleae allow Top's to keep it open.
