    CasinoMAn is right. I have found that grapes, cherries, etc. oftentimes can last up to 2 weeks without going bad. When I shop MB, these items usually go bad after 2-3 days in my house. I have to say t more »

    I'm not going back to MB because of all the food they wasted. Just in the first couple weeks of this, 40 truckloads of perishables went to the dump, and that's just at their distribution center level. more »

    Crudmudgeon: I don't blame you. I'm not going back to MB either because of all the food they wasted. Just in the first couple weeks of this, 40 truckloads of perishables went to the dump, and that's j more »

    He means that supermarkets that rarely have lines over 3 people deep (MB routinely has lines of 5 people plus), and offer a very wide variety of natural/organic items. Last time I went into MB (the ne more »

    Save Market Basket (the one with 88k followers that's run by a MB executive who was fiired) just did research and assumed that JP Morgan, who is advising Arthur S's side) sold 14% of the Delhaize stoc more »

    Not exactly so. All these workers are generally full time workers who generally work in the main office who earn a good paycheck according to a protestor I know. The full timers at store level are wor more »

    Not really. Shaw's has had a better fish counter on quality; maybe lesser selection at Nashua. The sale priced fish is routinely at or below MB sales prices. Stop & Shop has had prev. frozen cod for $ more »

    Not really. I find they started building larger stores just to put more redundant product. Instead of just having Friendly's for an ice cream with caramel an nuts, you've got Breyers, Hood, and Turkey more »

    Hannaford actually has better products and is more upscale than MB. Much better service as well. MB's service is much like Walmart's. You are always treated like a criminal everytime you try to redeem more »

    The farmers have no one to blame but themselves. All the MB shoppers are at Shaw's, Stop & Shop, and Hannaford. I'm sure one of these chains will be happy to purchase some of their fruits and veggies more »

    In a way, there's really good stores other than Market Basket such as Trader Joe's. Almost everything (with very few exceptions) that is reasonably comparable is priced lower at Trader Joe's. more »

    Market Basket has been beaten royally on sale prices. Cherries haven't gone under $2.99/lb at MB this year. They were $1.99/lb at Stop & Shop this past week; have been $2.49/lb for 3 out of the recent more »

    Agreed; Trader Joes has crystalized ginger everyday for $1.49 for 8 ounce bag. Every place I've compared this price to has been at least 50% more expensive on this one item, including MB. more »

    You have a Hannaford on the Lowell/Tewksbury line. Virtually, Stop & Shop is a 10 minute ride for you as well. more »

    Not true; apples are $.99/lb at Stop & Shop in Chelmsford, Woburn, Stoneham, Andover, and North Andover as well as any Hannaford I've been to. Anyway, I really only like apples in the fall when they'r more »

    Only reason MB is wildly successful is based on price, and when I talk price, I mean it on mainstream groceries; not natural/organic items which Trader Joe's beats them on much of what's comparable. T more »

    Wegmans builds very carefully, and one store at a time. That being said, a weaker MB would drive more volume to them and would make them more likely to expand into MB's area. My thought is if they can more »

  • Posted 06/28/2014 09:58:56 EDT

    Must agree that especially the bagged/styrofoam tray produce at MB is other store's rejects. Maybe if you have a Shaw's that does absolutely no volume, MB may seem superior because the perishables wou more »

    I am boycotting and there's enough places to take my business to without making my bill higher, or at least higher than what it would have been buying the same stuff at MB. Trader Joe's sells the same more »

    In my town (Nashua) Shaw's has turned itself way around, and I mainly have went to avoid the ridiculous overcrowding at Market Basket. With a $5 off $50 coupon from Recyclebank and with making appropr more »

    Frogman: take a look at the cold hard salaries on glassdoor.com; here's the link to go to it http://www.glassdoor.com/Salary/Market-Basket-Salaries-E223015.htm. All of the numbers factor in bonuses, e more »

    Agreed; Shaw's is only really improving outside of 95 to the North not so much close to Boston where convenience is of the utmost importance. I get sticker shock on some of their own price difference more »

    They are already starting to go up, or at least in a relative sense to their competitors. For example, $1.99/lb for green grapes sale price at MB on the front page is the regular price for red at Sam' more »

    Greed is definitely in play here and this forever changes the dynamics of MB. At least we still have Trader Joes, Costco, and Sam's Club in my area which have lower prices and the former two treat the more »

    Oh yes, I have been in Fresh Market and think that store is even worse than Whole Foods; at least some of the store brand stuff at WF is decently priced. And Hannaford has really great fresh items w/ more »
