NH Market Basket workers: Why mess with success?
A 34-year employee of the supermarket chain known for its "More For Your Dollar" slogan, Clevesy and others fear Demoulas could be ousted this week by the company's board of directors.
Acting as a private citizen, Clevesy, assistant store manager of the Stratham Market Basket, has contacted more than 100 people to drum up support for keeping Arthur T. Demoulas at the helm.
"Why mess with success?" said Stratham Market Basket store manager Mark Owens, who has worked for the company for 32 years — 25 as a manager.
"We're doing a phenomenal job. We're opening four to five stores per year, and there's no debt in this company," Owens said.
Demoulas often talks about "valued consumers" and "valued employees."
"This guy is returning money to consumers every day in lower prices, and employees are rewarded through their pay and pension plans. That could all change overnight," Owens said.
Grocery associate Alex Booth was among the Stratham Market Basket employees who volunteered time over the weekend to collect signatures for the petition.
