INDIANAPOLIS -- Some of your former Marsh locations are about to get a new look.

Fourteen of the former Marsh Supermarkets purchased by Generative Growth back in June will be rebranded and converted into Needler’s Fresh Markets by the end of October. 

“Customers can expect a clean, fresh look with our marketing and communication,” said Julie Anderson, Vice President of Marketing and Partner in Generative Growth II.
