I am just curious as to why Arthur T. and the employees do not explore opening their own store(s). Competition is always a good thing in democracy.

Probably because the resources and capital required to find and purchase the locations is a whole lot more than would be required to aquire the existing company with its existing locations.

To do so would instantly make the 49.5% of the Market Basket shares that the Arthur T faction controls worthless, destroying the start-up capital he would need.
