Londonderry’s Moonlight Meadery halts Market Basket deliveries
On Wednesday, Fairbrother, who owns Moonlight Meadery at 23 Londonderry Road, said he plans to show his support for Market Basket employees by taking his products off the store’s shelves for the time being.
“I knew this was the right thing to do,” he added.
Company officials said most of the participating Market Basket stores sell two cases – or more – of Moonlight Meadery beverages each week.
Since the employees’ strike began last month, some of the invoices sent to Market Basket have gone unpaid, according to company officials.
“In any case, we’ll be withholding all deliveries until then,” he added.
“I began working there in high school,” Fairbrother said. “Then it was my first professional job out of college.”
Moonlight Meadery isn’t the only company pulling away from Market Basket in response to the employee upheaval.
In a statement dated Aug. 18, Tim Mally, CEO of Boston Sword & Tuna, announced an end to the company’s longstanding relationship with the troubled supermarket chain.
