Not sure where anyone posting on here is from seeing as how this doesn't seem to be a local siteRead More anymore, but... if you want to donate blood then call the RI Blood Center. They are soley responsbible for blood for RI area hospitals. The Red Cross, although an ok organization, is looking for blood for MA hospitals. There has been this issue going on for some time now in border towns where the Red Cross asks RI residents for blood but the blood is not for RI. Call the RI Blood Center and ask... or ask Red Cross point blank where the blood is going (not RI).
David July 22, 2014 at 08:13 pm
Just as I assumed. After checking several different patch sites, this "article" appears onRead More many of them. So... RI RESIDENTS: CALL THE RI BLOOD CENTER TO DONATE BLOOD. NOT THE RED CROSS. Outside of RI? Call the Red Cross.

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.

The thousands of people who showed up in protest are hard working employees and customers who wereRead More treated with honor and respect by Arthur. When employees were down, he picked them up and would treat his customers like he did his employees.

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.

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.....

West Heff Hobo: Even the Supreme Court has ruled that "blue laws" are constitutional.Read More State governments not only have the right to regulate businesses, they have the obligation to do so. What I find so disturbing is that people believe their freedom is somehow being eroded because of regulations such as this. Are you suggesting that every time a blue law is repealed that we are somehow more free? Do you just want the consumers to consume and the producers to produce with absolutely no restrictions at all?
