retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that Marsh Supermarkets plans to spend $60 million over the next three years to build 10 new stores and remodel others.

CEO Joe Kelley says that the new stores will be fresh food-oriented, and also that the company will put a new emphasis on private brands as he looks for new ways to differentiate the 97-store chain.

You can’t stand still if you want to have a sustainable business model. It is good for everyone when chains like Marsh, which has its share of travails in recent years, keep moving forward.
