(July 5) Indianapolis-based MSH Inc. is spending more than $10 million this year to renovate and rebrand more than 100 LoBill Foods, O’Malia’s Food Markets, and Marsh Supermarket stores.

Many of the renovations entail upgrading perishables departments, including produce, meat and dairy in the smaller stores, said Connie Gardner, senior director of community relations. Larger stores, which offer more variety and more upscale items, are expected to receive upgrades in the produce, meat and dairy departments, and some will feature cheese shops, seafood departments or wine cellars, Gardner said.

MSH, an affiliate of investment firm Sun Capital Partners Inc., completed 19 store renovations as of July 3, at a cost of $200,000 to $2 million per store. She said MSH started renovations this spring and it plans to upgrade all 104 of its stores by late November.

The investment in renovations solidifies MSH’s commitment to the grocery business, Gardner said. The upgrades are funded in part by Sun Capital’s sale in June of the McNamara Florist division to McNamara’s president, Toomie Farris.

Produce department upgrades include adding new Euro tables and display cases, increasing the volume of produce, and stocking more varieties and higher quality produce, Gardner said.

All of the LoBill stores are expected to be renamed Marsh Hometown Markets. Some O’Malia’s Food Markets are to become Marsh the Marketplace stores, Gardner said.
