INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — All 44 remaining Marsh stores could close in the next two months if a buyer or business partner is not found.

A Marsh spokesman confirmed the possibility to 24-Hour News 8 on Tuesday afternoon. He said that a buyer or business partner must be found in the next 59 days.

On Tuesday morning, 24-Hour News 8 reported that more than a dozen stores could close after discovering a filing with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. The filing was a WARN notice, or Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification. WARN filings must be made public if a business has 50 or more employees.

The notice cites a “period of unexpected difficulties and increased competition resulting in poor sales performance.”

Here are the stores on the WARN list for having 50 or more employees:

  • 1825 Kinser Pike – Bloomington
  • 843 East Main Street – Brownsburg
  • 2140 East 116th Street – Carmel
