Struggling Marsh Supermarkets has stopped paying rent on six Indianapolis stores, a move that might suggest the struggling chain is preparing to close them to shore up finances.

So, what does your crystal ball see for 2 years from now? We are all interested in the future. That is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Those things happen when you cheat on your wives, the Marsh brothers just found out how fast you can lose success. Karma is a bitch. Make sure to frequent the Village Pantrys, for that's where the ex-wives interests lie.

Marsh has been owned by that family for YEARS. A corporation has owned the stores for 10 years or more.

A friend works in the main office. Rent hasn't been paid on those buildings for a long time. They stores will all eventually close or be bought out if they can find a buyer.

I do not work in the grocery or food supply/service business. Not sure how this is going to affect me. Crystal ball? I don't know, I'll talk to me friend that works in the front office. Likely be dissolved completely, in time. Why do you care so much about a stupid grocery store? Shop at Kroger.

I don't care about grocery stores that much, I thought you might have more general future-seeing capabilities or some such, but then again, if you had that, you wouldn't be calling your self "idiot" here on the internet, you'd have done played some winning luck pre-future-seen lottery numbers somewhere and be in some sunny island like place with hot and cold running water where you don't have to poop in a bucket like we do here.

I'm sorry to hear that your priorities are out of place. Perhaps you could try securing employment so you can fix your plumbing problems. If you apply yourself and save up, you can afford a vacation as well. While it's true, I do usually travel this time of year, I have opted to wait another 2 months to go on a 7 day cruise. Plus, the sailings prior were sold out.(Ps, avoid carnival & royal Caribbean. They are disgusting). Shell out the extra cash for a balcony room. They even have internet (for a nominal fee) so hicks like you can troll the message boards, while sailing the 7 seas. Wouldn't want the incredible scenery to interrupt your daily activities.

I have been to March twice in 20 years since they closed the big one where I live, I was angry for them doing so.
The reason was they gave is that the area as in shoppers had gone down.
What it was they decided to go bigger and taker on walmart and failed.
they tried to say they didn't have as many shoppers is why they closed in my area.

Every time I shopped there, It was busy.
I know many others who were as angry as me for the reason they gave for closing down.
This meant people had to drive even further just for basic groceries.

Yes they still offer discounts, They are far higher than even Walmart prices and Kroger.
They have lost the honor of being loyalty to customers .
I under stand business's are in business to make profits.
Many of the bigger stores get huge tax exemptions for hiring and for building those stores.

Most of the time is is about making more money over any loss in profits.

Has anyone heard if the one in Greenfield is closing? I hate trying to get groceries at that nasty WalMart. Krogers is ok, mostly.
