We are humbled and grateful for everything you have done and the sacrifices you have made to fight for and preserve our company's business model and reputation. Over the past two months, our fortitude was tested daily, but it was your incredible display of faith and belief in the Market Basket philosophy that constantly gave us strength to persevere. Your actions became an inspiration of hope to people everywhere, and because of this, Market Basket will be back even stronger than ever!
To our cherished Customers, thank you from all of our Associates and Business Partners for everything you do in support of Market Basket. We are even more dedicated and committed to provide you with More for Your Dollar shopping; where value, service, and quality go hand in hand. Over the next few weeks, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work together to restock our warehouses and stores with fresh food offerings.
To our 25,000 Associates who have shown the world what Market Basket is all about, you have our deepest gratitude, respect, and appreciation. Together, we will move forward to strengthen Market Basket's reputation of being a truly great place to shop and work.

On behalf of all of us at Market Basket, we want to sincerely thank our customers. Some may say welcome back, but we think it's more fitting to say, Welcome Home! Market Basket is in the people business first, and we look forward to serving you and your families for many years to come.
