Mars Super Markets will close a Baltimore distribution center in March, opting to outsource supply and distribution to Bozzuto's. The 17-store independent chain made the decision because of "ever-increasing competition in the grocery business and to remain competitive with large regional and national chains," CEO Chris D'Anna said. The closure will displace 78 workers, but Mars says it hopes to work with Bozzuto's to rehire as many as possible.
