Where it all began...
In 1979 Marc Glassman opened a relatively large but unpretentious drugstore in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. It didn't take long for cost conscious consumers to turn a modest beginning into a major enterprise of discount closeout & grocery stores. We now operate nearly 60 stores throughout the Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown and Columbus region. We are very proud to be locally owned and operated in N. E. Ohio. Marc's targets the value conscious family shopper. Our basic inventory represents name brand merchandise in the groceries, health & beauty, and general merchandise categories. Each of our stores has a courtesy section that provides many extra services such as postage stamps, money orders and pre-paid phone cards.
One of Marc's most popular sections is our closeouts department. Each store in the chain features the best buys our buyers can find Worldwide. You never know what you're going to find in our closeouts department, but smart Marc's customers know that if you see something you like, you'd better buy it then. Nothing stays around very long in Marc's closeouts. Marc's closeouts section is liable to have everything and anything from automotive products to toys, giftware, servingware and pet supplies.
Marc's stores work on a shorter mark-up than most retailers. A big part of being able to do this is our tremendous store volume. Literally thousands of consumers pass through our doors everyday.
All of our stores are self-service with the exception of our prescription drug departments and cosmetics departments. The design of our stores includes well-lighted, logically planned aisles that are consistently evolving to provide ease of shopping and a pleasant experience.
