MIDDLEBORO — Trucchi's Supermarkets announces the grand opening of its new store at 438 West Grove St. will take place on Sunday, starting at 8 a.m. The public is invited to join in the celebration.

Giveaway raffles, fun activities for children including face painting, balloon artist and visits from Finn the Goldfish and Chester Cheetah are planned from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., with multiple food samplings on Sunday and throughout the next week. Taunton Federal Credit Union's new branch within the Trucchi's Supermarket will also be celebrating its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., special promotions and raffles on Sunday and throughout the week.

A complete renovation is now finished at the 45,000 square-foot building. This is visibly evident outside by the redesigned façade that has transformed the look of the entire plaza. Inside are full-service meat, deli, seafood, bakery, produce and floral departments, state-of the art frozen and dairy departments, and grocery variety encompassing dietary needs, offering organic, gluten-free, and all natural selections.

 

"We're proud to call Middleboro home and provide affordable prices, impeccable service and exceptional quality to a well-deserving community," said Trucchi's Supermarkets' President, James P. Trucchi. "Our vision from inception of the project was to create the hometown store Middleboro deserves inside and out.

"No two Trucchi's are alike. We're embarking on multiple ventures with this location," said Trucchi.

Taunton Federal Credit Union will open their first branch within Trucchi's Middleboro, making this the first to include a financial institution within the store.

 

A new department was created specifically for this location: a café with seating, wireless access, serving espresso and gelato."This particular space was meant to serve a special purpose when construction revealed beautiful wood above. It was hidden behind ceiling tiles for decades, so don't forget to look up when you visit," Mr. Trucchi said.

Highlights and details throughout the store are intended to capture the essence of greater Middleboro. An enormous full color bog mural is dedicated to the indigenously grown cranberry. The assistance of Middleboro Public Library director Danielle Bowker was essential to locating historical photos so they could be enlarged to permanently display the town's past within the store, Mr. Trucchi said.

"All of us are excited to welcome and introduce residents of Middleboro and surrounding towns to their Hometown Store and begin to build lasting customer relationships. We're prepared to earn our place within the community." added Middleboro store manager Henri Labrie.

 

Established in 1928, Trucchi's Supermarkets is an independent, family-owned and operated business. With the opening of Middleboro, Trucchi's second generation will employ nearly 900 personnel at their main distribution center and six store locations throughout southeastern Massachusetts. Taunton is home to two locations; Abington, Middleboro, New Bedford and West Bridgewater are each home to one.
