We will limit our non-essential purchases and seek local vendors, i.e. farm stands, farmers markets,Read More etc.. Other markets when necessary and in those instances, whatever is convenient as they are all pretty much the same anyway! Many who don't have any connection to DeMoulas Markets can't understand the dynamic of what is happening and have little little faith in the effect that the employees and consumers actions will have on the Board. There was little outcry when this was a family dispute; however, now that the intentions of Artie S to leverage his position with little regard for either the dedicated employees and the career investment that many of them have made or the 70+ communities that have come to rely and trust the brand, I believe that the ATD faithful will prevail. If they didn't act, it was only a matter of time until their workforce and the competitive edge were diminished anyway! Stand strong MB employees and supporters!! Here's to hoping that ATD and his team are restored to there positions sooner than later!

I always give blood and sometimes platelets if Im a match for someone. The Red Cross is dear to myRead More heart as when my father died I was stationed overseas. The Army wasnt very helpful getting me home for the funeral but I approached the Red Cross and they made it happen. They are a good organization that helps a lot of people. Giving blood is quick, painless and saves lives, call your local Red Cross and see where the nearest blood donor clinic is, its the right thing to do!
Chris12 July 23, 2014 at 11:37 am
I became a blood donor by accident. I was called for jury duty last year. As you know you have toRead More sit around and wait for your name to be called for a trial. While we were all waiting the jury attendant entered the room and announced that the mobile blood center just arrived. He said, " If you donate we will look very favorable upon you." I bolted out of my chair, ran down 4 flights of stairs , and got in line. My thinking was anything is better than sitting around another day waiting to be called for a trial. I was amazed at how fast and easy it was to donate blood. AND the jury attendant released me from jury duty for the next 3 years!! I've been donating blood every two months since that wonderful day I was released from jury duty...

I'm totally on the side of the employees and Artie T. That said, I don't think it's okay to publishRead More personal numbers and emails here. People have a right to their private lives outside of work. I don't agree with what they're doing or how they're doing it, but you should keep it in the public square and leave their homes out of this.

Maggie, the CEO does not work for the employees. It is the responsibility of the board ofRead More directors, elected by the shareholders, to decide who should be CEO. Does management get to decide who heads up the union?

Numerous "business" reporters are predicting that MB will be sold to some "hedgeRead More fund", who could care less about the customers or the employees. The hedge investors will milk it the business for all they can and then sell a few locations and close all the others. This is the Bain Capital model. You know, Bain Capital of Mitt Romney fame.
Tewksbury2001 July 23, 2014 at 06:05 am
@Rick- I think they need all the shareholders to approve that sale and I don't see that happening. IRead More think Artie S underestimated the impact of this, however he obviously knew enough to not name himself CEO but rather two outsiders that can take the media hit on this. If I were the two CEO's I would resign. They can't recover from this. Perhaps Artie T should have just put in a recurring dividend payment to shareholders to provide them with some liquidity and maybe that would have kept. them happy and he could continue to run the business.
This guy deserves his bad reputation.

Unfortunately Mary... You and I will be paying for THEIR decision to walk off the job... itsRead More called unemployment. They have absolutely no right to walk off their job and expect to keep their job Mary... I don't care that they "liked" Arthur or not. Go for it Market Basket! Show them who is in charge of their job. A job is a contractual agreement. No pissin and moaning allowed.. See Ya! They are acting as humanitarians, they are gifting their jobs at MB to others that need and APPRECIATE their jobs. Thank You MB and workers of walk off, we needed more job openings in the area.

Ed B July 22, 2014 at 06:04 pm
I was watching WBZ tv. They have contract trucks hauling the trailers. The employees were yellingRead More scabs. How on gods good green earth are they scabs. Scabs are people who cross UNION picket lines. No UNION so how are they scabs. They also showed a trailer at a Market Basket fully loaded with perishables. The store manager said on camera that they won't unload until the bring Authur back. This guy should be fired and banned from all MB property along with anyone else who won't do there job. Enough is enough. You have stomped your feet long enough. Time to put. Your big boy pants on and go back to work. I for one will never shop at MB again. The $20 a week I may save isn't worth it. McKinnon, Luccis, even Hannaford before I. Spend 1 dime at MB.....
