Thanksgiving 2014

We realize that “thank you” is not enough and yet “thank you” is all that we can really say. We just hope that the depth and sincerity of that statement will find its way to your hearts as you have touched us. – Arthur T. Demoulas, August 28, 2014


Last year as we approached the Thanksgiving holiday we wrote about giving thanks for all that we have in this company, each other and in the man who embodies the culture which brings it all together, Arthur T. Demoulas.

We were in the midst of so much uncertainty and we had no idea how long the road would be or what the outcome would look like. What we did know was that together as a family we would fight the good fight for something we love and the chips would fall where they may. Looking back now we can see that we were in the early stages of something that was growing, a movement was taking shape and an irresistible force was building that would not be stopped!

This year we have so much to be thankful for. We have saved our company; we have saved the jobs of our CEO and his leadership team; we have shone a bright light for all to see on just how fantastic the culture of OUR company is. Most importantly, we have cemented a precious bond among associates, customers and vendors; the words “We Are Market Basket” will resonate deeply for all of us forevermore. Books will be written, films will be produced and business classes will be taught, but WE did this! Together we put it all on the line and helped save this company. It’s important to realize that no one person played a role larger than anyone else because without every single one of us doing our part with unwavering resolve, it doesn’t get done.

Tomorrow, let’s all give thanks for our blessings. Let us all take pride in what we have accomplished over the last 18 months. Let us all raise a glass to each other, our Market Basket family, for standing up and fighting for what we believe.

Here’s to us.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Senator Barry Finegold

We have seen several posts on different pages regarding Senator Barry Finegold and his participation in our fight to save ATD and the company.

The contingency plan announced last night by our brilliant Board members has the company being “saved” by shuttering 61 stores, firing the workforce, crushing vendors and raising the unemployment claims in two states in order to keep Market Basket solvent. These same men who fired ATD, Bill Marsden and Joe Rockwell then brought in F&G are […]
