Mesimps1995 These people implored the public to help bring her home, used state resources for searchRead More efforts, and now, 9 months later, POOF!! She's back. No explanation. If you are going to make the general public part and parcel to aiding in her disappearance, you either need to explain to some degree what happened, or pay restitution if resources were used duplicitously.

Why hasn't Bedford Patch done a story on the Bedford Market Basket...whether they're gettingRead More deliveries, whether their staff is rallying, etc.? I keep looking here for local info, but am not finding it. Have I missed something?

Hi Michelle, thanks for the note. Right now, we're primarily putting together regional coverage ofRead More the Market Basket situation for the NH and Mass. Patch sites.

Sadly, the DeMoulas family has been fighting over Market Basket for longer than most peopleRead More remember. I've been shopping at MB since the early 80's...when the old Burlington store still had sawdust on the floor in the produce department...and have always marveled at their pricing and happy employees. Their customer service people really do provide service, and without a roll of the eyes or attitude that you see in other grocery stores. That's all due to Arthur T's leadership. Not to say that both sides of the family haven't made money - they have - and none of them will ever be in the poor house. However, since there's one family member who has rallied the support of the employees and is committed to treating everyone fairly (even his own overly greedy family members), he and his team should be in charge of running the business. As long as a profit.. and the profit is LARGE...is being turned, why should there be any complaints? I just don't get it. As for shopping, I have gingerly gone into Hannafords for the few things we need. When it seemed like there was DeMoulas trouble brewing a couple of weeks ago, I stocked up on dry goods and items I knew wouldn't spoil to ride out the storm. There are certain deli items that we are missing this week...not even the 9.99/lb Boar's Head turkey or roast beef can compare to the Jenny-O and store brand at DeMoulas.

Remember when strikes forced Eastern Airlines to go under in 1991, and Frank Lorenzo lost control ofRead More the business? It appears that the same might happen to Market Basket, if this situation isn't solved soon. Let Artie T, buy the business, get employees back to work, deliver goods to the stores, and bring the customers back.
Moudsie July 25, 2014 at 09:40 am
Of course it will happen if these fools don't smarten up--they have 71 buildings--the money is inRead More the selling of product and right now they are selling nothing--so each day the value goes down and they don't seem to getit.

We need to do what the majority of the state wants, make marijuana legal for personal use, forRead More people over the age of 21. The facts are out and only people without the internet don’t know marijuana is good for the human body (That is why our brains have cannabinoid receptors). For an adult consuming the plant they would need to consume over 1000lbs of cannabis to die from it. The only way you will get hurt from using marijuana is if the NH State Police kill or kidnap you because you like to smoke or eat a plant. At the very least we need to allow the sick to grow their own marijuana to make their lives comfortable. Stop living in the very much so ignorant past. Legalize Cannabis.

I would shop at Hannaford. I hate Shaw's and will not go there.

I miss my Market Basket so very much!! I will not go there until it's settled! I'm like inRead More mourning!!! I will have to break down and shop some where and that will have to be Hannaford's because I hate Shaw's!!!

Missing Stop and Shop in Exeter - since they closed I've been shopping at MB in Epping (because if IRead More have to go to Epping for STARBUCKS now I might as well just go to MB) .. But made my last visit Sunday and signed the petition to bring back Artie T and committed to staff that I'd boycott .... So am shopping at Hannaford .... Except for bread and cold cuts - those I get at Shaws because they carry what we like in those categories (but are far too expensive for milk, eggs, and produce) Market Basket is best for prices and has best selection for what we like (except specialty bread) .... So not shopping at MB requires some adjusting -- BUT worth it to show support for staff and send message to greedy Board .... Your stock won't be worth diddly when the chain is bankrupt

Why are we finding out on Jul 22 that fresh fruit sold between Jun 1 & Jul 12 are beingRead More recalled? What are the chances that fruit that old is not rotten by now? Pretty lousy timing on the notification. Who was foot-dragging, the FDA or the news?

lol...I was wondering same thing, Keith Lucy; why would anyone care who gets their blood, as long asRead More they NEED it. Here's one for you on-the-fencers; a veteran nurse once told me that one pint of blood can service up to FIVE (5) premature babies. That should be enough fodder to push you into a Red Cross blood drive.
David July 24, 2014 at 09:05 pm
The point...Keith and sph...is that this patch crap posts the same stuff regional. RI gets its bloodRead More from the RI Blood Center and when Red Cross swoops in the blood goes anywhere. RI ends up with shortages and the needs here get tight. I don't care who gets the blood and encourage any able bodied person to donate. That was an FYI for anyone from RI reading this post that may think that they are helping in RI when they are not. And yes...when Mass calls for blood from the RI Blood Center and they are able to they send it. Same goes for when people donate after a tragedy thinking they are directly helping. They are not. A lot of the blood ends up going bad because they get too much. If called they will always ask you to donate year round and avoid the urge to 'help' during a tragedy. Just call and ask and they will tell you that...ANY blood center.

I have a plan. Why can't Arthur T. and some of his closest allies open their own stores? There is aRead More vacant bldg.in Redstone Plaza (Stoneham) that was formerly a Shaws. Start there and continue until the "Arthurs Market" puts artie s. and his crew out of business! Current employees would jump on-board by the hundreds! I know I would invest in a company with a leader like Arthur T.

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?
