Early life

Marshall was born on February 28, 1919 to a prosperous Jewish family in Lawrence, Massachusetts, the son of Annie (née Spector) and Louis Marshal.[1][4][5] His father abandoned the family after he lost everything in the Great Depression.[5] In 1937, he graduated from Beverly High School in Beverly, Massachusetts, shortly before entering the United States Navy during World War II where he worked as an underwater welder.[5] Marshall returned to Beverly after the end of the war, where he married the former Marirose Pelletier, his first wife.[1]

Business career

Marshall began his post-war career by working as a welder and contractor.[1] He then purchased a fruit stand, which he expanded into a supermarket.[1] By the 1950s, Marshall was selling wholesale products out of his supermarket, including sundries, baby supplies, and cosmetics.[1] In 1956, Alfred Marshall opened a new addition to his existing supermarket, located in Beverly, Massachusetts, utilizing funding provided by two business partners.[2][3] This location became the first Marshall's department store.[1][2][3] (The company later dropped the apostrophe from the name).[1] The original Marshalls location remained open for decades. However, the first store eventually closed and is currently the site of another supermarket, as of 2014.[1]

Alfred Marshall and his business partners expanded the chain throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Marshalls had 36 locations throughout New England and California by 1976, which were directly owned by Marshall and three other business partners.[1] The partners sold Marshalls to the Melville Corporation in 1976.[1] Marshalls was next acquired by TJX Companies, which also owns T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods, in 1995.[1] Marshalls had 496 locations at the time of the 1995 acquisition.[1] As of 2012, there were 904 Marshalls stores worldwide.[2]


Marshall died from a short illness in Boca Raton, Florida, on December 28, 2013, at the age of 94.[1][4] His first wife, Marirose, died in 2001. He was survived by his second wife, Estelle Newberg, and three children - Ronald Marshall, Jan Marshall and Deborah Miller.[1] A resident of Boca Raton at the time, Marshall's funeral service was held at Temple B'nai Abraham in his hometown of Beverly, Massachusetts and he was buried at Sons of Abraham Cemetery.[3]
