Marsh Picks Up Trash at Atlas Site

For anyone following the Atlas issue, there've been some interesting letters to editor in the IBJ on the issue. Comments range from defenses of Marsh's decision to vows to never shop there again. It might be time to file in the "too little too late" department. From today's IBJ Daily:

Marsh cleans up Atlas site

After a string of bad publicity stemming from an IBJ article, Marsh Supermarkets Inc. sent a few people to pick up the trash around the old Atlas Supermarket at 54th Street and College Avenue yesterday. The company bought the building in 2004 but recently put on hold plans to put an Arthur's Fresh Market at the site. Neighbors complained that Marsh should at least get rid of the beer bottles, shopping carts, graffiti and piles of brush littering the property. The company listened. "It's cleaner now than it was before," said Joe Walters, co-owner of the Northside News Cafe, which fronts the location, "but it seems like they only pick up when somebody calls their attention to it." Marsh officials did not immediately return a call for comment.
