How would you like an app that can save you 50% off on some groceries at many Tops Markets in Western New York while cutting down on food waste?

The app is called Flashfood.

According to WIVB-TV, the app lists a variety of items like produce, baked goods, meats, and more that are close to their ‘sell-by’ date and lets you save 50% or more on those items.

Tops has now expanded the program allowing you to use the app at 33 locations throughout Erie and Chautauqua counties.

Tops debuted the app last August on a trial basis and through December they report 1,000 shoppers were able ot save 30,000 pounds of waste from going to landfills.

Kathy Sautter, Media Relations Manager at Tops commented:

“We were really impressed and saw that a lot of people were interested in using it and so we thought we really needed to make sure more people had access to this.”


The app is simple to use and FREE. Download the Flashfood app on your smartphone.

Pick the store you’d like to shop at, add the items you would like to purchase to your online cart. When you arrive at the store customer service will help find your items in a specially marked fridge.

The app is FREE, saves time, money, and waste...sounds like something worth trying out.
