INDIANAPOLIS -- Marsh Supermarkets announced Thursday that nine more Indiana stores would be closing for good by the end of May, that makes 18 stores closing this month. 

Six of those stores are in Indianapolis, including two that were announced Thursday on Kentucky Avenue and 86th Street. 

The latest flurry of closures comes exactly three weeks after the company announced that nine other stores would be closing, including three in Indianapolis. 

“Today we reluctantly announced the closing of nine additional Marsh locations," the company released in a statement on Thursday. "Our decision was solely the product of the difficult competitive environment and in no way reflects on the efforts of the great associates working in these stores.”

Before the whirlwind of closures began in January, there were over 70 Marsh Supermarkets and O’Malia Food Markets in Indiana and Ohio. After the May closures, the company will only have 44 stores still open. 

Marsh has been an Indiana staple since the company opened their first store in Muncie in 1931. Their headquarters is currently in Indianapolis.
