BLOOMINGTON - Marsh Supermarkets Inc. is set to unveil the first of 30 planned remodeled locations throughout the state Thursday. The Kinser Pike store in Bloomington was built in 2001.

The Indianapolis-based grocery chain announced the plans in January and said it was closing a different store in Bloomington because of underperformance and an expired lease.

Chief Executive Officer Tom O'Boyle says "we are focused on giving our customers the best supermarket experience in Indiana. This remodel gives Hoosiers a look at what lies ahead for 29 other Marsh stores: an enhanced shopping experience, with the best in fresh and local products available in any supermarket."

Marsh says the Customer Improvement Plan involves "refreshed décor, new services and amenities" and will include more organic, gluten-free and Indiana-grown options.

In all, Marsh operates 72 Marsh Supermarkets and O'Malia Food Markets in Indiana and Ohio. It has nearly 9,000 employees.
