BOSTON — A holiday weekend is usually a busy time for supermarket workers. It’s going to be particularly busy for employees of the Market Basket chain.

Now that fired CEO Arthur T. Demoulas is back in charge, the same workers that virtually shut down all the stores are now trying to get them up and running as soon as possible.

WBUR’s David Boeri joins WBUR’s Morning Edition to talk about his visit to one of the chain’s oldest stores where he found returning workers and customers in joyous moods.
