The mystery of Market Basket's missing website and the lone NH shopper who filled the void

Market Basket customer Doug Lyon of Milford said he's disappointed to see the shelves empty and hopes they can resolve it soon as he shopped on Monday afternoon. 

BOSTON — When the Market Basket situation blew up this weekend, so did Michael Devaney's inbox. “I knew something was up when I had 37,000 e-mails,” he said. Market Basket, a multi-billion dollar company based in Tewksbury, does not have an official website. Devaney runs the unofficial one. It all started three summers ago at his New Hampshire apartment. He and his wife Jocelyn wanted to make a late-night grocery run, but they didn't know the hours of the Concord, New Hampshire, store. Nothing was posted anywhere online.
