On again, off again for Market Basket deal as board meeting is canceled

Spokesmen for Demoulas and the board said there was nothing new to report as negotiations continued for the sale of the troubled grocery chain.
“It’s frustrating, but I’m more optimistic than frustrated,” said Jared Archambault, front-end manager of the Market Basket off Interstate 93 in Hooksett. “We’re keeping the faith.”
But the family feud that has lasted well over a month and led to customers boycotting the stores was not about to be resolved overnight.
Archambault said the fight to restore Demoulas would not have lasted as long as it has without the support of Market Basket customers, who have been doing their shopping elsewhere.
