The story of Trucchi's Supermarkets is that of one man's dedication to making his dream a reality. It was July 1, 1928 when his dream first took flight. At the mere age of sixteen, with $500 he had borrowed from his Italian immigrant parents, William. M. Trucchi Sr. opened his first store on Tremont Street in Taunton, Massachusetts. It was the size of a small house and went under the name Hometown Stores.

Trucchi’s 90th Anniversary was commemorated with a new modern T-Shirt available for personnel and customers. The T-Shirts boasted Trucchi’s “Your Hometown Store” on the front, “90 YEARS” under the Trucchi’s heart logo; appropriately printed on each sleeve.
With hard work and determination William's fledgling business weathered the depression. Often he would extend credit to those who were unable to pay, establishing a bond with his neighborhood patrons.
