    hi. i shop at your oxford mass store. carriages at front of store near registers are four rows deep. this makes little space when coming out after purchase with the carriage it makes a one way aisle. customer have to wait to go by each other. i have spoke to a manager. don’t know which one. probably a front end manager. he seemed not interested. have since returned and carriages are still four deep. its also a fire hazard. thanks.

    I really hate to do this but, your store in this town,Zwolle,La. where I live, and have lived for 50 years, needs new management. I waited in line along with 6 other customers, Friday, . there was only 1 register open. not only did they not call for package help for me or the other customers, there was no one to help any of the customers. I know at least 12 people that would rather drive to Many, than shop here. it is a sham, because when people grumble and complain about the lack of service,you know what happens, the store looses business, then the next thing it is shut down.I have friends that say they only go in there when they absolutely have too.I hate to see this happen.please send someone under cover to check it out. thank you,

    I am a bit confused. We recieve your flyers & have wanted to visit your store, but there are no locations of stores in Me.
    I went to your website & again I find no information. Why do you waste money on ads in a place with no stores in that area???

      You are looking for the Market Basket chain located in Massachusetts, Maine, and NH. Your Maine store is located in Biddeford and has a new store scheduled for Westbrook. BTW they are a great chain, rated #5 in the country.
