INDIANAPOLIS -- Marsh Supermarkets is said to be considering moving jobs from its Indianapolis headquarters to Yorktown, Ind., where it still has a warehouse and which served as the chain's home for decades until it moved to the Indianapolis area in 1991.
While Marsh wouldn't confirm or deny the talks in the local press, The Star-Press of Muncie quoted local officials as saying that the relocation of three departments is "relatively close" to happening. However, Roy Budd, who leads a Muncie-area economic development group, cautioned that the rumors are speculation.
Rumors of a possible return to Yorktown by March began circulating in mid-2007; in December, Marsh announced it was seeking to sublease part or all of its current four-story headquarters building, a decision was seen as an austerity move by its new owners, Florida-based Sun Capital Partners, which moved to cut corporate staff and sell off some properties before embarking on its ongoing store improvement and renovation campaign.
