One of the great ongoing success stories in the modern history of this city is the new Market Basket supermarket.
At the end of this month it will celebrate its first anniversary in business in the sprawling and well stocked new store.
Not only is it the largest employer in the city. It is also the largest grossing single retail food business in the city – and in surrounding cities.
The Market Basket and the team running the supermarket are professionals of the first order, and this comes across to all of us who frequent the place and who love to do our grocery shopping there.
Quite frankly, there is nothing like it anywhere in this state.
And this accolade isn’t just about its size.
Market Basket shoppers exult in the savings and the quality that is available.
The Market Basket excels at what it does.
Despite throngs of shoppers everyday, the place remains immaculate, well-stocked, and outrageously interesting as a shopping venue.
Market Basket has also become the city’s most visited restaurant, serving thousands everyday at its prepared foods department.
Whether it is sushi you are seeking or a cheeseburger or a perfectly natural salad, the Market Basket offers all of that and so much more.
The Market Basket Bakery is the largest freshly baked goods department in the State.
Overall, we can’t say enough about the positive effect this supermarket has had on the city and its reputation.
We welcomed the coming of the new Market Basket last year with great anticipation.
One year later, and we marvel at this colossal bit of food retailing genius.
Well done, Market Basket.
Well done Demoulas Family.
