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.
