Dorothy Lane Market adds electric car charging stations

Dorothy Lane Market has pretty much everything a shopper could want. Now, you can add electric car-charging stations to the list of things the specialty grocer offers.

The grocery store debuted an electric car-charging station at its Washington Square store and will be adding other charging stations at its Oakwood and Springboro locations in the next few weeks.

“We noticed more of our customers are driving these electric cars,” DLM’s President and Chief Operating Officer Calvin Mayne told Dayton Daily News' Mark Fisher.

The  grocery chain will offer the charging stations at no cost to electric car owners, “as a service to our customers,” Mayne said.

The charging stations will be located in the store parking lots, so customers can charge their cars while they shop. The Washington Square store is equipped with plug-ins for one 30-amp Clipper Creek charger that is compatible with several electric cars, and with two 80-amp chargers that are used by Tesla owners.

DLM Springboro on Ohio 741 will have a similar setup, with two Tesla and one Clipper Creek plug-ins, while the smaller Oakwood store will include one of each type of charger, DLM officials said.

Mayne said he hopes to open charging stations at the DLM Springboro and Oakwood stores within about a month.
