We’re delighted to be recognized as Tonawanda’s Member of the Month for the month of August. All three of our store managers, Joe Daugherty from our Young Street Store, Rick Wartinger of our Niagara Street location, and Sam Qureshi of our Meadow Drive location are proud to be lifelong Tops associates. Joe has been with Tops for 20 years, Sam for 27 years, and this September, Rick will be marking 40 years with the Tops family. 

Tops has had its roots in Tonawanda since the 1970’s providing quality products, at affordable prices, and our customers discover exceptional value every time they shop. Whether it’s national or TOPS BRAND products you crave, to priding ourselves on working with over 200 local vendors and growers, Tops is your neighborhood store with more. As we approach our 60th anniversary in 2022, we continue to be the neighbor you can turn to by supporting important causes like The Ride for Roswell, Oishei Children’s Hospital, FeedMore WNY and so many other worthwhile organizations. We look forward to our upcoming Free Gas and Groceries Campaign in October where customers can win a chance to win free gas and groceries all while supporting Oishei Children’s Hospital.  Customers simply purchase a $1 ticket and support the dedicated and caring staff at the Oishei Children's Hospital who are making miracles happen every day for our most precious asset...our children.

DiGiore Insurance Agency & Financial Services, LLC.
Di Giore Insurance has been a proud member of the Tonawanda community for more than a half century. Our promise to our customers has always been, "Our Service Doesn't End With The Payment of Your Policy."

My husband, Joseph, started the insurance firm in 1955 - it's hard to believe, but that's more than 65 years ago! I have been working at Di Giore Insurance for more than 45 years, and in those decades our team has handled just about every insurance situation.

We are an independent agency, representing 17 insurance companies. We specialize in personal lines - auto, home, boats, RV's, motorcycles and umbrella policies - as well as commercial lines - business owner policies, workers' compensation policies, municipalities, errors and omissions policies and business umbrella policies. I grew up in Western New York, and I've enjoyed a long career in the insurance
profession. I also enjoy golf and participating in community activities when time permits.

The success of Di Giore Insurance reflects not only our longevity but also the superior customer service of our team. It is our hallmark! Some of our customers have been with us for decades because they know they can always count on us.

We tell everyone to stop in and let us give you a quote for your insurance needs. We'll save you money and give you the best service in town!
