About Us

Smithmyer's Superette was established in 1965 by brothers, Joe and Jim Smithmyer. 

After being successful entrepreneurs of Smithmyer's Truck Stop located in Cresson, PA, the brothers transitioned into the grocery business. 


It was in Loretto, PA (5 miles from Cresson) that the pair identified the need for a local Superette. 

Over the years many changes and additions have taken place. Some of these include: in store meat department (1971), installation of gas pumps (1972), lunch time menu items (1987), and in store bakery (1990). What has not changed has been our dedication to serving our community and customers!


Today, Smithmyer's Superette is still family owned and operated.
