This Market Basket have cashiers that lick their fingers to make change and separate the plastic bags from the holder. Then they handle your food! This is disgusting and unsanitary and management seems not to care. They are getting a bad reputation for this in Portsmouth and people are starting to shop elsewhere. These days with swine flu and various other communicable diseases make this practice particularly gross! Who wants a cashier's saliva on their food?

Pros: Good selection.

Cons: Disgusting, unsanitary habits!

The Demoulas Markets are not the most modern stores, but they do carry a wide variety of items and the prices are very reasonable. The produce department doesn't have the best quality of all the stores in the area but most of it is good and so reasonably priced that I prefer it to the other stores. As for the service, I find it kind of hit or miss. Some people are very good and some are not. I feel the attitudes of the staff reflect the way are treated by the managers. I have seen days when the managers are in the store and they are snobby and rude to the staff. I would never work for such rude managers. I recently called to find out the price of an item and the deli manager answered the phone. He did answer my question accurately, however he was loud, spoke very fast and wanted to get off the phone as quick as possible. Once he gave me the price I requested he hung up before I could get another word in edge wise.
