Marsh Identifies Two Buyers

Posted: Updated:

Bankruptcy court documents have revealed two successful planned bids for Indianapolis-based Marsh Supermarkets. The company, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection a month ago, has 44 remaining stores in its portfolio. The sales to Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) subsidiary Topvalco Inc., and Generative Growth II LLC, whose grocery chain-owning parent is also based in Ohio, involve a combined 26 locations for a total of $24 million. Marsh has said the sale attracted "numerous bidders."

The documents, filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware also outline responses from Marsh to objections from CVS that involve a previously-announced sale of pharmacy assets for $37 million. The previous agreement includes noncompetitive provisions that would keep new pharmacies from opening in the old spaces. Marsh says the bids are contingent upon the buyers being able to open pharmacies inside the stores they plan to purchase.

In a separate filing, Marsh detailed which stores are slated to be sold to which buyer. They include:

Topvalco's proposed acquisitions:

  • 1825 Kinser Pike in Bloomington
  • 843 E. Main Street in Brownsburg
