Market Basket Supermarkets is a locally grown, American success story. More for Your Dollar is more than just a slogan, it is a way of life for tens of thousands of loyal consumers in MA and NH. The company is on the verge of a major shakeup which will change the whole business model by raising prices so that shareholders may realize bigger gains...all at the expense of the employees and the consumers. They could proceed to sell the company and then we will all be getting Less for Our Dollar.
The Board of Directors will be voting on Thursday, July 18 to fire the current CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas, who has shepherded the company through a wonderful period of growth. This man has always had the best interests of his employees at the forefront of all business decisions, often times at the expense of his own gains.
Please sign this petition to help do what we can to Save Market Basket!
Dear Mr. Levins, Mr. El-Hage and Mr. Cowan.
We implore you to please consider all that Market Basket means to the people who shop there, work there and understand it to be more than just a business. For so many in the region it has been the place we can trust to help us save money as we feed our families. It has been run by a family who cares.
Please consider the ramifications to so many people if you vote to oust the current CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas. We will be the victims who lose the wonderful, independent business at which generations of our families have shopped and worked. Market Basket has always had our backs when it comes to prices and employment. Now we have theirs.
As independent board members, we urge you to take your vote seriously and search your conscience before you decide. So much more is at stake than simple control of the company.
Thank you for your consideration
