Marsh Supermarkets, LLC announced today its intentions to sell the remaining Marsh intellectual property assets and the remaining grocery (beer and wine) and drugstore (liquor, beer, and wine) alcohol beverage permits it currently holds.
“Marsh Supermarkets has some great brands and trademarks that have been well known throughout Indiana and Ohio,” said Ben Habegger, Vice President of Legal Affairs. The intellectual property assets include registered marks and/or designs such as Marsh, Marsh Hometown Market, O’Malia’s, Main Street Market, Experts in Fresh, and many others. Habegger also stated, “The alcohol beverage permits include grocery and/or drug store permits in approximately 25 Indiana and Ohio counties.” The permits are geographically specific and require state and local approval in order to be transferred. “We have had numerous parties contact us about these different assets and we are now ready to dispose of them,” said Habegger. All bids for the assets must be submitted to Marsh on or before Monday, October 16, 2017.
Marsh Supermarkets filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the District of Delaware in May 2017. The Debtor has sold off most of its assets through court-approved sales, and all of its stores were closed by mid-July 2017.
