"Mr. D's Food Center stores in Powell and Lander are offering free local delivery of grocery orders priced $50 or more, and will deliver cheaper loads for a $5 fee. Owner Michelle Motherway, who has a compromised immune system herself, said the two stores have quietly offered limited delivery services for several years.
"But we really started pushing it and advertising it right around the time I went into isolation myself," Motherway said.
"Even with special hours set aside, she said shopping at a grocery store isn't safe for the elderly and others at high risk for COVID-19.
"I don't want you in Mr. D's [if you're at risk]. I want you to call me on the phone, and I want to deliver your groceries to you," Motherway said. "The safest thing for our vulnerable population that is for them to really just stay at home."
