Customers and employees were ecstatic to return to Market Basket stores yesterday, following the news late Wednesday night that Arthur T. Demoulas would be returning to the company. Shoppers congratulated employees at local Market Baskets - some even hugged employees - and brought balloons to tie out front of the Fort Eddy Road Market Basket in Concord.

Even though stores were not yet fully stocked and normalcy had not returned, all were happy to be getting back to Market Basket yesterday.
