Well You Know, I realize that most of these reviews are for the Market Basket Stores in the Northeast but there are also Market Basket Stores in Southeast Texas and Southwest, Louisiana. Well, the Market Basket store i am reviewing here is the one in Moss Bluff, Louisiana.
For many years, this particular Market Basket had a monopoly on being the only Grocery store in town. They were always jam packed full and they certainly did the business. But in 2014, they put in a brand new Wal-Mart Community Grocery store right across the street from it, and now much of the business that Market Basket was getting is now going to Wal-Mart. I am not praticulary fond of this Market Basket because there is always an icky smell in the air of unwashed bodies.
It seems that they don't run their air conditioning like they should be doing to clear out the air. Almost everything at this store costs more than Wal-Mart, so many people just go to Wal-Mart. Others, by principle of being against Wal-Mart, refuse to go shopping anywhere but Market Basket. I feel very sorry for Market Basket, because they have lost many thousands of dollars in business to Wal-Mart.
When they were a monopoly, their was quick turnover of merchandise on the shelves. but now, often you will find that there is stuff nearing it's expiration date because they aren't selling anywhere near as much as they used to. But I hate going to Market Basket because there is always the smell of unwashed bodies lingering in the air.
hey, if these dummies that stink would just go do their shopping at Wal-Mart, they would save enough money to buy soap and deodorant and laundry detergent, etc. It makes you think that they must be pretty dense.
Reason of review: that market basket is no longer a monopoly in town.
That wal-mart community grocery built store next door to them.
I didn't like:
When market basket had a monopoly.
