MIDDLEBORO — Trucchi's Supermarkets is opening its new "Hometown" store at 438 West Grove St. this morning at 8. The public is invited to come and celebrate — the ribbon-cutting, giveaway raffles and activities for children.

A total and complete renovation is now finished at the 45,000 square-foot building accentuated by the redesigned facade that has transformed the look of the entire plaza.

Inside, shoppers will find a full-service meat, deli, seafood, bakery, produce and floral departments, state-of the art frozen and dairy departments, and grocery variety encompassing dietary needs, including organic, gluten-free, and all natural selections.

Trucchi's Supermarkets' President James P. Trucchi said; "We're proud to call Middleboro home and provide affordable prices, impeccable service and exceptional quality to a well-deserving community. 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 Trucchi's to include a financial institution in the store.

And, a new department was created specifically for this location; a cafe 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," he said.

Highlights and details throughout the store are intended to capture the essence of greater Middleboro. For instance, an enormous color bog mural is dedicated to the 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.

"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 remains an independent, family-owned and operated business. With the opening of the Middleboro store, Trucchi's second generation will employ nearly 900 people 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 each have one.
