As the future of Marsh Supermarkets dangles in uncertainty while it searches for a potential buyer, the chain has confirmed that all of its stores are in jeopardy of closing. If all of the stores close, 1,535 employees would be terminated, according to local news source IndyStar.

Ben Habegger, Vice President of Legal Affairs, Marsh SupermarketAccording to a WARN notice dated May 8 from Marsh Vice President of Legal Affairs Ben Habegger to Carmel Mayor James Brainard: "We deeply regret and understand the uncertainty this action will cause our valued employees and the community," Habegger wrote.

Locations with more than 50 employees staffed, which are at risk of closure, are:

  • 1825 Kinser Pike, Bloomington
  • 843 E. Main St., Brownsburg
  • 2140 E. 116th St., Carmel
  • 2904 S. State Road 135, Greenwood
  • 15151 E. 82nd St., Indianapolis
  • 1435 W. 86th St., Indianapolis
  • 227 W. Michigan St., Indianapolis

As we previously reported, the company had stopped paying rent on as many as six locations throughout Indianapolis in March, and at least two ownership groups have sued Marsh over nonpayment of rent. So far, more than 20 central Indiana Marsh stores have closed in 2017.

The Indiana-based business was acquired by Florida-based Sun Capital Partners in 2006. The company had 120 locations as of the time of the acquisition—but has reduced to 67 stores.
