As more national grocery chains with locations based in Dayton, Ohio, unveil a delivery service as a part of their online grocery shopping experiences, locally owned and operated Dorothy Lane Market delivers, literally, adding delivery as an option to DLM Drive-Up earlier this month.
In February, the Dayton-based specialty grocery store announced DLM Drive-up, a revamp of its existing online grocery shopping service featuring a rebrand, new convenient location with a storefront for curbside pick-up, and enhanced website. “Earlier this year, our goal was to improve the overall experience of our online grocery shopping service. Now, we’re ready to move forward by enhancing the convenience factor even more,” says Patrick Arnold, DLM’s IT Director who oversees this segment of the business.
Delivery of groceries ordered via www.DLMDriveUp.com will be available to the neighborhoods surrounding the three DLM locations to the following zip codes: 45066, 45409, 45419, 45429, 45440, 45458, and 45459. “Right now, we want to focus on the areas nearby our stores and then expand from there,” says Sarah Linville, DLM Drive-Up manager. “With the success of our curbside pick-up, we think this is just an additional way DLM Drive-Up can make people’s lives easier, whether they are crunched for time or are unable to get out of the house for whatever reason.”
All grocery orders placed via www.DLMDriveUp.com will be shopped from the DLM Washington Square location for both the curbside and delivery options. Although curbside pick-up is offered seven days a week, delivery will be available Monday through Friday between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. There is a $5.99 Shoppers Fee applied to every order placed via www.DLMDriveUp.com. For delivery, an additional $9.99 will be applied.
