Hmmmm EBT card must have been on 'empty'....??? Good for the store manager for being so alert.....Guess who pays for the police detail and everything that is shop-lifted -- yea I thought a lot of hands would go up.....

We go to Mkt Bskt in Chelsea and I believe we are the only ones in there that actually pay (with our own cash) for what we purchase !!! We have to pay for a cab ride home but if you have EBT you get a free cab ride home !!!! I always wondered why the cabs were lined up beside the bldg ???

If they don't take the free cab, they have better vehicles than most of us do.....

I shop there, and I pay with my own money. It'd help if we'd all stop being so self-righteous and hyperbolic. I know plenty of people who shop at Market Basket in Chelsea who pay for their groceries with their hard-earned money. Sure there are people working the system; there are also legitimately poor people.

Thank you for paying for my groceries and cab fares. Keep up the good work. I was thinking about looking for a job today but instead I'll take a nap. Love, Welfare Mom of 12.

I agree with you. That place is pathetic. Seems nobody pays with cash and nobody speaks English (even the employees). I won't go there anymore.

Only reason this family shops there is because of the cheaper prices than Stop & Shop .... We have to make every penny count in our budget....

Ummmmm: I agree that there are people on welfare due to no fault of their own (unemployed, medical issues etc)....but the vast majority of EBT users are frauds, are here illegally and know how to manipulate the system.

These EBT cards should be used to buy nourishing food for these families. However, I see potato chips, soda, many snack type foods, ice cream in their carts. How about putting in fresh veggies, fruit, milk, meat (not junk chx fingers/nuggets and the like)....

Oh yea, please remove some of that expensive jewelry you flaunt when paying with EBT cards - makes some people think you are well off....

EBT cards and WIC vouchers are the main stay of Chelsea Mkt. Bskt.

just because a person isn't paying in cash, doesn't mean its an EBT card. Maybe its a Debit card.

I shop at Market Basket and I pay with my Debit card all the time everywhere I go. I never carry cash. To the person who posted everyone there uses EBT not EVERYONE who shops at MB uses EBT I don't. I work hard pay my bills and provide for my family. I know some less fortunate people have it tough. No need to kick the legitimate ones while they are down.
