BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WTHR) - The Beech Grove Marsh store will return after all -- as a Safeway.

Company officials confirmed the news at a press conference Monday afternoon. They said they are rehiring 98 percent of the old Marsh employees. They will hold a job fair this Thursday at Beech Grove City Hall to fill the 25 other available positions.

The new store plans to reopen the first week of August.
