Why Do We Care What Goes on with Market Basket?

It’s Saturday morning–the time when many folks do their weekly grocery shopping, whether it be because of their own schedule or the great deals–and those who have been living under a rock and haven’t heard about the Market Basket dispute are going to be shocked when they find nothing but empty shelves.

Now, I’m all for saving money and having a positive shopping experience, but I can’t remember ever caring about who’s running the ship at any chain store; all I want is to have the same experience each time I go, no matter who is in charge. When Sam Walton died, I don’t remember Wal-Mart changing much. I can’t tell the difference between a corporate-owned McDonald’s or a privately-owned one. So why should I care which Arthur Demoulas is in charge at Market Basket?

Call in and tell me why! (508) 996-0500 or (877) 996-1420, or post your comments here!
