NOCO Express, a family-owned, c-store and gasoline chain based in Upstate New York, has completed store renovations at 6011 Transit Road, East Amherst. The interior remodel took five weeks and features an updated look and expanded fresh food offerings.
“We understand our customers are busy and looking for ease of shopping when it comes to the convenience-store experience,” said Jim DeFilippis, VP and GM, NOCO Express. “Our latest remodel in East Amherst achieves that, and with the new layout, we are able to offer more fresh, grab-and-go items for our customers.”
The inside of the East Amherst store features a new floor plan, making the store easier to shop; relocated registers; and new décor and signage for a refreshed look. A cooler island features an expanded variety of freshly prepared and prepackaged sandwiches, salads, wraps and snack packs from NOCO’s signature Nickel City Foods in addition to more selection of better-for-you options throughout the store. Customers also can find a greater beer selection, including a variety from local breweries.
