Artie T. stops by Chelsea Market Basket on Labor Day


CHELSEA, Mass. ( -- Back in business and even out on labor day, Arthur T. Demoulas took the time to thank the Market Basket employees that got him back on the job Monday.

He was also thanking the customers who supported him as well, boycotting the supermarket chain until he was back in charge.

Demoulas' visit was a victory celebration, as employees surrounded him, clapping and shouting "Ole, ole ole ole, Artie T., Artie T."

Demoulas said he was dedicated to keeping prices in the store low, and if that meant slowing some of the company's expansion to new stores, that's what would happen.

Employees and customers had been protesting the supermarket chain for more than a month after Demoulas was ousted as CEO. Some managers were fired during that time. Other workers walked off the job, and it is unclear if they will receive any back pay from that time.
