Market Basket places ad for jobs

BIDDEFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Market Basket began running full-page newspaper ads today in the Boston area -- saying it will hold job fairs next week.

The embattled grocery store chain will be accepting applications for employees who don't come back to work on Monday, a deadline issued by the company Wednesday.

And -- protests continue outside the chain's Biddeford store.

Inside -- produce and meat shelves are bare with only a few customers in the aisles.

Employees want ousted CEO Arthur T. Demoulas reinstated.

It's been almost two weeks since since the work stoppage began and the company is losing up to ten million dollars a day in sales and spoiled merchandise.

Market Basket management says it is considering all offers to buy the company including one from Arthur T. himself.

Employees tell News Center they believe the former CEO is only one that can save the grocery chain.

'At least that would ensure that he would have control of the company and he is honestly the only one that can put it back together. Whether it be working with our customers and our vendors and our employees, he is the only one that can make that happen,' said Heidi Kleiner, Market Basket Employee.

The company plans to hold a three-day job fair Monday to find new store directors, accountant, buyers and other employees to help runt yhe 71-store chain.
