INDIANAPOLIS -- Marsh Supermarkets announced Friday that they will be closing all of their pharmacies after they were sold to CVS.

The sale will affect 37 Marsh pharmacies.

Marsh pharmacies will close over a three-day period beginning May 3. All prescription information and inventory will be transferred to CVS during that time, according to a spokesperson for the company. 

The news comes amid a flurry of store closures across the state because of ‘weak performances.’

The company announced last week that they would be closing seven locations by the middle of May.

A Marsh spokesperson said current Marsh pharmacy customers will be notified by CVS when their prescriptions are transferred and by signs in the Marsh stores about where their nearest location will be.

A spokesperson for CVS released the following statement:

"CVS and Marsh will work together to ensure that pharmacy patients experience a seamless transition with no interruption of service. Each Marsh location will have signage with the location of the nearest CVS Pharmacy. However, any CVS Pharmacy location will be able to fill prescriptions for Marsh’s pharmacy patients."
