According to Charles L. D’Amour, president and CEO of Big Y, “The heinous and horrific attack that occurred
in Buffalo last weekend underscores the need for us to gather as a community to provide comfort and support for the victims of this tragedy. In particular, we want to stand with and support fellow grocery colleagues and especially those heroes on the front line and innocent shoppers who are impacted by this senseless violence. Together we must stand against continued racial oppression, intolerance and violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with these victims and their families, the community of Buffalo and our industry colleagues at Tops.”
