the Market Basket stand off? I really never realized how much cheaper they were until this strike for Artie T.(owned 49% of the company) went into play. Apparently he was fired by his cousin Artie (owns 51% of the company) & now workers are refusing to work until Artie T. is back. Man this is effecting everyone from employees to customers to competitors. Even if they do come back it's going to take weeks to restock the shelves. It amazes me how one family could effect so many people.
