INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Now that Kroger has acquired 11 former Marsh supermarkets, they're looking for employees to work at those stores.

Topvalco, Inc., a subsidiary of Kroger, was approved to purchase the stores earlier this week. The purchase is expected to be finalized next month.

Two of the new stores will be located in Indianapolis, two in Bloomington, two in Muncie and two in Zionsville. Marsh stores in Brownsburg, Fishers, and Greenwood will also become Kroger stores.

While it is not yet known when the new Kroger stores will open, the company will hold in-store job fairs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 17. Kroger is also scheduling six job fairs across central Indiana next week to staff the openings.

Those job fairs will be held at the following locations:
