An annual tradition in the Miami Valley, DLM began bringing live lobsters in from Maine 40 years ago. Many families make the yearly pilgrimage to buy the seafood to serve at Memorial Day gatherings.

Lobstermania sales start at 9 a.m. at the Oakwood, Washington Township and Springboro stores. It’s a good idea to arrive early because once the lobsters are gone, they are gone. DLM will have 3,000 lobsters to sell for $15 each.
