What a lousy article! It doesn't explain why these markets were being converted, or what (if any) noticeable changes there will be between the old markets and new markets.

my mom is a manager @ marsh... they were bought out by another corporation last year... there have been talks of closing the stores, but instead, have been reducing hours, bonuses, etc.

When did Marsh have bonuses to begin with. They have always been decidedly lower paid than their Kroger (and union) counterparts.

We at Walmart are laughing as we watch Marsh's slow and agonizing death we helped to cause.

All I can add to this post is it cant come soon enough. The highest priced supermarket in town with the poorest selection of products, however the stores would make good outlets for second hand stores.

Usually I shudder at the remarkable cynicism in these posts... but I gotta agree in this instance. It's a crap article.

I hate Marsh supermarkets! About the only choice here in Muncie. They s_ck! Half of the store is "Marsh" brand crap!

LoBills is the pits. I wouldn't buy dog food there! Hope they all go out of business.

Bring in Krogers or someone else.

Hey, are you working for the union? The union tells folks what they do for the employees, but truth be told, McDonald's pays more than union stores such as Kroger. UFCW is only good for one thing and that is to give the union officials in a job.

According to the article, "Marsh now has 82 Marsh Supermarkets, 16 LoBill Foods and six O’Malia’s Food Markets in Indiana and Ohio."

Let's see what the count is a year from now. Blame the Vulture Capitalists from Florida.

Gotta tell you. I love the Marsh where I live. If you live in a crappy town, you probably have a crappy Marsh. Mine has a great selection. By the way, my husband in management for Sunbeam Bread. Do you know that many "name brand" companies repackage their products for stores so that they can have their name on it. You can't seriously think they package all the "Marsh" brand products in their warehouse. Are you serious?

The Marsh store in our town is head and shoulders above the other big name stores (Krogers and Meijer) because of appearance and staff. Employees are nicer and the store is way cleaner than Kroger!! Kroger employees act like they are doing you a favor by selling you high priced items! Give me Marsh any day, at least in my town.

The 2 Greensburg stores were not mentioned.....both of the LoBill stores here are now Marsh Hometown Markets, too.
I hope that Marsh prospers under new management. WalMart gets too much of everyone's money!

Too bad they closed our "ghetto foods" as we caled the lobills at sherman and washington streets here in indy.It definitly wasnt much. Helll the assit manager got electrocuted in the men's restroom! but is was better than nothing. of course you had to go elsewhere for some of your groceries because their produce was crap!They want our money in this area but wont give us anything decent.i would like to see them all go broke and give us small stores which at least had some stuff and service.

That is not true. I am 18 now, but when i was 16-17 i worked for the Marsh in Irvington and the Kroger at Washington Square. Kroger pays much less and takes out union dues. A lot of weeks I made less than minimum wage BEFORE any taxes were taken out.

Kroger i an evil corporation. My friend worked there and only worked 1 day this one week, his check had 5 hours on it and it was like $5.50 because of union dues. And its a closed shop, union isn't optional

Wish they had kept the LowBills in my neighborhood open. Tried going to the local Marsh and found that for the same food my bill jumped almost $75 plus each week. Now, I shop at Aldi's and Save a lot.

That was the best move they could have done.....that store was dangerous nothing but a gang infested drug hang out and infested with roaches...course if you fit in one of those catagories then I bet you do miss it.I am so glad I got out of the hell hole call Naptown and the idiots that live there.

Our LoBill/Marsh in Connersville is a very nice store with a good selection yes some things may be higher priced but when you compare it to walmart or kroger it seems to not matter so much
