Mars Supermarkets are a local chain of Grocery stores in metropolitan Baltimore, Maryland. Known for their excellent customer service, high quality produce, and low prices, they currently operate 18 locations in the Baltimore area and employ over 1700 people. The idea for Mars supermarkets came from Joseph D.Anna in the early 1940s, whos location for his upstart grocery store was an apartment complex in Essex, MD called Mars Estates. Nearby, Glenn L. Martin was developing an airplane called the Mars Flying Boat that could take off and land in water, so "Mars" seemed a perfectly logical name to instill local pride and recognition. His first store opened on Old Eastern Avenue in 1943. It was operated for three years in a partnership with friend Bob Daum. They decided to open a second location in the 300 block of Eastern Ave. As more joined the team, the company decided to re-locate to the south in Dundalk, MD, where they purchased a strip center with seven shopfronts to expand their business. A shop that sells food, either a Supermarket or a much smaller place. ...
