Sales to liquidate inventory at the 18 stores that weren’t sold at auction to other grocers this week could last until early July, said a Marsh spokesman.
The 18 Marsh Supermarkets stores that did not sell at auction this week were to begin liquidating their inventory Thursday, a spokesman for the Fishers-based grocery chain said.
Going-out-of-business sales will continue until all items and products are sold — likely into early July, said Thomas Mulligan, the Marsh spokesman.
The 18 stores that will close as part of Marsh’s bankruptcy are four in Indianapolis; two each in Carmel, Kokomo and Muncie; and one each in Beech Grove, Noblesville, Anderson, Lafayette, West Lafayette, Logansport, Connersville, all in Indiana, and in Hamilton, Ohio.
Twenty-six will remain open and operated by either Topvalco Inc., a Kroger subsidiary, or Fresh Encounter Inc., including the Marsh Hometown Market store at 3075 E. 25th St. in Columbus, which was to become a Fresh Encounter store Thursday.
