Dorothy Lane Market is adding home delivery as an option to its online grocery shopping and curbside pick-up service launched earlier this year called DLM Drive-Up.

Groceries can be ordered for deliver at in neighborhoods surrounding the three Dorothy Lane locations in the following zip codes: 45066, 45409, 45419, 45429, 45440, 45458, and 45459, according to a company statement.

“Right now, we want to focus on the areas nearby our stores and then expand from there,” said 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.”

Dorothy Lane is offering delivery service at a time when an increasing number of national grocery chains, including Cincinnati-based Kroger, have established their own delivery services and online shopping sites in the local area.

All grocery orders placed via will be sourced from Dorothy Lane’s Washington Square location for both curbside and home delivery.

Although curbside pick-up is offered seven days a week, delivery will be available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

There will be a $5.99 “shoppers fee” added to every order placed for curbside pickup, and a $9.99 fee for home delivery.
