Market Basket

Get ready for higher prices at Market Basket CEO Arthur T. Demoulas fired by Board of Directors

I am extremely upset about the firing of CEO Arthur T. Demoulas by the Board of Directors. I have been a devoted Market Basket shopper for almost 40 years now and have always enjoyed their low prices and the great employees that currently work there. With this firing I can foresee a change in all that, and hopefully another grocery market will seek to come to Tewksbury and give them a run for their money. We are going to need competition and not just Market Basket as the only big store to shop at locally . I wish all the current employees Good Luck in all of their future endeavors with the new management. I don't consider this a good move.

Maybe Tewksbury will finally get the Lucci's market that was promised 40 years ago

With the greediness of the offspring of the Demoulas Bros. any new market in town will prosper....This may be the end of Market Basket.....Greed in the family is the first sign of the end of a great business....I guess their multi-million dollar salaries weren't enough....

Port987: I couldn't give a dam about who makes what money. I do worry about what I pay for my groceries and how nice the employees are to me. Like I have said before I enjoy going shopping there now and the prices are reasonable compared to other markets. I happen to know a few people that travel from Boston to shop at Market Basket because there isn't one where they live. I absolutely see the difference in the attitude of the Market Basket employees compared to let me say Stop & Shop. They go out of their way to help you in any way. I don't want to see Market Basket turn their employees to a very unhappy group of workers. Arthur T. DeMoulas did everything he could to compensate his employees, so if he made you said that he did, well he did spread it around.

I don't remember all the history of this but didn't Artie T get control after Artie S was scamming Artie T's family out of control or was it Artie S's father that was scamming. I thought a judge gave control back to Artie T's family for a reason but it was a long time ago and I don't remember the story.
