In Muncie, two Marsh stores will close. The other two were bought by Topvalco, a Kroger subsidiary.
In early May, Marsh officials filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and said the 44 locations could close if the company did not find a buyer.In the last several months, many stores closed around central Indiana, which the company said was due to poor performance and increased competition.
The auction was for bidders who were considered qualified to operate assets of the company.
The Marsh spokesperson said liquidation sales at the Marsh stores not being purchased has begun and will last until inventory is gone, likely early July.
