NOCO Express celebrating 80th year with in-store Scratch & Win contest

To thank its customers for their patronage during the past 80 years, NOCO, a family-owned and locally operated energy company based out of the Town of Tonawanda, is celebrating its anniversary through an in-store contest.

On Monday, July 15, NOCO will be launching its 80th Birthday Bash Scratch & Win sweepstakes across all 35 NOCO Express locations.

NOCO Express shops in the Ken-Ton area are located at 535 Kenmore Ave.; 820 Niagara Falls Blvd.; 3085 Delaware Ave.; and 2596 Sheridan Drive.

The stores will be decorated for a birthday bash and will offer free cupcakes to customers throughout the day, while supplies last. In addition, customers will have a chance to instantly win one of approximately 10,000 coupons or prizes.

From July 15 through Aug. 20, customers who make a purchase at any NOCO Express (in-store or at the pump) will receive a NOCO 80th Birthday Bash Scratch & Win ticket and could become the instant winner of various prizes, including a trip for four to Orlando, 46-inch televisions, mini iPads, $80 NOCO gift cards, Buffalo Bills tickets, NOCO Express Gasoline for a year, NOCO Electricity for a year, NOCO Natural Gas for a year, and more than 10,000 coupons for discounts inside NOCO Express.

“We are proud of our strong Western New York roots, and our 80th anniversary is not only a time to celebrate, but also a time to give back to our customers who helped us to reach this milestone,” said Michael F. Newman, executive vice president. “Thank you to our customers and the local communities we serve who have come to rely on NOCO Express for their fuel, freshly prepared meals, grocery items and other on-the-go needs.”

Founded in Tonawanda in 1933 by Reginald B. Newman, NOCO started out supplying coal to residential customers and eventually entered the retail convenience store business in 1984 with its first NOCO Express location. NOCO currently operates 35 NOCO Express retail convenience stores throughout the Buffalo and Rochester areas, providing premium fuels and fresh food and beverages made daily.

Today, NOCO Express serves more than 15 million customers annually.
