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?
Tony Schinella July 24, 2014 at 05:29 pm
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.

You are so right--we just got back from another store--it was horrible--not as muchRead More selection--higher prices--no fresh seafood. I hope the fools who are money-hungry sell to Arthur T really quick.
Samantha Clattenburg July 24, 2014 at 08:15 pm
IDK if everyone remembers what Market Basket's reputation was when we were kids. Everyone I knewRead More called it Trash Basket, justifiably so because their stores were dirty and the meat and produce were lackluster to say the least. Family feud aside, and yes I know that Artie T. is on the side of the family that pulled some shady business in the previous generations, but the fact of the matter is, Market Basket continues to deliver quality products at a MUCH lower price than Hannaford and Shaw's, with cleaner stores these last couple decades. Basically, the other side of the family previously ran their stores equivalent to a slum lord who wants his rent but won't fix anything. There is really no saying whether or not they would even exist today, certainly doubtful to the degree of their current success if Artie T. had not cleaned up their act and given their employees excellent bonus and benefit incentive to run their stores like clockwork. And the people whom Artie S. hired to replace Artie T. just gutted the chains for which they were previously employed. So really, ask yourself which side of the family has the most ominous interest and what version of the story is most viable. Artie T. who is speculated to have created decades worth of loyalty from both employees and customers, only to create the conditions in which to tank the stores and buy the company, or Artie S. who is outright going to gut it? Which version of Market Basket do you want to see prevail?

Dupes, Good points and I agree somewhat. Yet, market share takes time and $$, things MB is workingRead More on with wild success unlike the 3 aforementioned stores...Hanny's has alot of stores because Maine doesn't, Maine needs em, good for Hanny's I guess..I could barely name 3 in the MV..and they bought up the Shop N Save & Victories of the world didn't they? In between flip flopping failing stores with Stop N Shop. Stop N Shop, started locally (cool) is unfortunately headed the way of it's baby bro IMO ..remember Bradlees? Besides trying to add Starbucks and having union workers (not a bad thing really) SNS is treading water at best. Did you really need to mention Shaw's? Do I still need a Shaw's card to get a non family size box of Cheerio's for $4.69? Shaw's has closed as many stores as MB has thriving (70+) and laid off 1600+ employees in the past 10 years = very not good. I am a MB cult member, I admit it...heck I was mad at MB when they didn't have the free coffee pots next to the bakeries at their new / renovated stores...I heard it was because people were bringing in their own 10+ oz. coffee cups...

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.

This week instead of going to MB I went to four places: Target, Cumberland Farms, Trader Joe's, andRead More Hannaford. That's what you have to do to find the lower prices that Market Basket offers all by itself. Wondering if it was worth the gas.
bbestnana July 24, 2014 at 04:26 pm
I would shop at Hannaford. I hate Shaw's and will not go there.
Beverly Boucher July 25, 2014 at 12:53 am
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!!!

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?

Lisa, re: your comment--Considering that babies are started on day 1 with vaccines containingRead More formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum and other caustic tissue destroying ingredients and hammering them with over 100 vaccines (some totally unwarranted) by the time they reach age 5, there can be little mystery as to why babies and children get sick. As for genetics, an adult exposed to toxic overload can pass their damaged DNA to future generations. The rates of cancer today have increased over the past 2-3 decades as have the poisons in our environment. The majority of cancers are environmentally caused. It will not improve unless we demand a change in our environment and that would be a huge undertaking with the commitment of a majority, to change a government that allows chemical, pharmaceuticals and other profit hungry corporations free reign to pollute and poison.

SPH July 24, 2014 at 08:54 pm
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 went there yesterday. I wasn't going to , then I thought about it and realized there are stillRead More folks working there who need to earn a living.
mark patterson July 23, 2014 at 12:22 pm
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.
