Details

Bob Hurley began his career in the food business in 1968 while still in  high school. He worked as a part time bagger for the Super Duper  Supermarket in Elmira, New York until he graduated.
After graduation  he was promoted to full time and was transferred to the Produce  department where he trained as a Produce Clerk. A few short years later,  Bob was promoted to Produce Manager, than to Assistant Store Manager,  and finally to Store Manager.
In 1982, after fourteen years at  retail, Bob was given the opportunity to purchase his first store.  Together with his wife Ann, Bob purchased the Super Duper Market in  Dushore, Pennsylvania.
In just one year, Bob and Ann were able to  expand the store and add a Deli and Bakery department to compliment his  existing operation.
In 1989, Bob and Ann purchased their second store  in Troy, Pennsylvania. It was a larger 9,500 Sq. Ft. store so he  recruited his three sons to join him in the business. Chris, Nick and  Rob all worked in the store part time while they went to high school and  college. After graduating from college, Chris and Rob left the family  business to pursue their own careers, while Nick remained in the  business and is still active today.
In 1996, the Hurleys purchased  their third store in Towanda, Pennsylvania. Two years later they built a  new, ground up 18,000 Sq. Ft. replacement store in Troy, Pennsylvania  and closed the smaller unit. Bob Hurley and family were now running  three profitable supermarkets and overnight became very successful,  strong independent retailers.
In 2001, after three very successful  years in Troy, Bob Hurley was offered a "deal of a lifetime" to sell  this store to the supermarket wholesaler Penn Traffic Inc. Bob  capitalized on the opportunity and today that store is a Bi Lo corporate  store, still owned by Penn Traffic.
In 2003, Bob Hurley moved his  business to the Connecticut based wholesaler Bozzuto's Inc. and was  recruited into the IGA program where he was already a perfect match for  the Hometown Proud heritage of the IGA format. This same year, Bob  promoted his son Nick to the title of General Manager and gave him a  challenge to grow the business using the IGA format as his starting  point. Nick accepted the challenge and began immediately working the IGA  program with all it has to offer.
In 2008, Bob and Nick made a  decision to expand and totally re-model the Towanda location. The  re-model expanded the store from 17,000 Sq. Ft. to 22,000 Sq. Ft. with  all new refrigerated cases, new gondolas, new floor, new ceiling, new  lights and new décor. It expanded the Produce and Deli department to  three times its size and doubled the Meat department. The total re-model  took 14 months to complete and the expense and effort has proven to be  very successful for the Hurley Family. They have become the pillars of  their community and have stood up and met the IGA challenge and won.
Bob and Nick Hurley are truly Hometown Proud IGA Retailers.
