The Story Behind the Supermarkets

William Trucchi Sr. claimed that friendship was the key to his success. He took pride in his dedication to his consumers, often saying, "We know many of our customers. It's important to give them that little extra." He also took pride in his loyal employees and it is philosophy that kept William's dream alive.

The North Abington store was originally a First National store, which William purchased in 1975.
In 1982, at the age of sixty-nine, William Trucchi Sr. died. Due to his dexterous accomplishments, the way was paved for a second generation to assume leadership in a company that was once only a dream.
The North Abington store, purchased 8 years earlier, was modernized in 1983 in order to provide more retail space.
Since William's death the business has continued to prosper, prompting continued renovation and construction. In 1986, to achieve a more efficient operation, the warehouse in Raynham was modernized and expanded. The warehouse on Chandler Ave. was sold, thereby consolidating the distribution center under one roof.
The County Street store was expanded in 1988, growing from 9,000 to 43,000 square feet. An entirely new market was built around the existing market. Aside from the expansion of every department, a complete bakery and fish department were created.
In 1992, the store at Tremont Street and the entire shopping plaza encompassing other stores was expanded and modernized. The Supermarket, with a 55,000 square foot area, became Trucchi's largest store.
In December of 1995, the Trucchi family placed a bid on a former Almacs store located on Acushnet Ave. in New Bedford.
In March of 1996 it was clear that the old Almacs building would house Trucchi's number five. Cleanup and renovations began immediately, and on June 8, 1996, Trucchi's in New Bedford opened it's doors. On September 8, 1996 the Abington store celebrated their re-grand opening. A number of departments and services were added to make Abington a full service store.
In 1998, renovations for the West Bridgewater store were completed. The re-grand opening was celebrated February 28, 1998. The existing 18,977 square foot structure was replace with a 41,934 square foot full service market. At no time did Trucchi's close it's doors during construction. Both the construction crew and the Trucchi's crew worked hand and hand to ensure the stores performance was not hindered. The remodeling of the West Bridgewater store has rendered five full-service Trucchi's locations for the Trucchi family. This accomplishment was completed, with pride, by the devoted employees of Trucchi's.
In June 2002, our Abington location was renovated for a second time. This renovation project improved and expanded the deli, meat department, bakery and entranceway. The renovation has made it easier for our customers to navigate the store. The most noticeable changes to the store were nostalgic photos, carpet and hard wood floors.
