The Mars supermarket in Carney Village Shopping Center will soon become a Weis.
Weis Markets on Tuesday announced that it has entered into an agreement with Mars Super Markets, Inc. to purchase five Mars stores in Baltimore County, including two in Dundalk and individual units in Essex, Arbutus and Carney.
The company plans to complete the purchase in late July. Once the purchase is complete, Weis Markets will operate nine stores in Baltimore County, doubling its footprint in the region.
Mars is expected to close or sell all of its remaining stores by July 31st.
“This is an important acquisition for us as we’ve been steadily expanding within Baltimore County in recent years,” said Jonathan Weis, Weis Markets’ Chairman and CEO. “We have great respect for Mars, the D’Anna family and their associates who have long-served the public as a locally-focused food retailer. These are successful, well-run stores and we look forward to interviewing the associates of these stores for employment with our company.”
“We have strived to truly be a part of the communities we serve and are proud of our legacy for providing both quality and service. We are grateful for our loyal customers and for our associates who serve them,” said Mars Super Markets Chairman and CEO Chris D’Anna . “As a family-owned business, we recognize Weis Markets as a company with a similar commitment to its communities, customers and associates. This was an extremely important consideration in our decision.”
