Meet the DLM Family

  • Dennis Chrisman
  • Vice President of Human Resources, Produce Director
  • Dennis Chrisman started his career at Dorothy Lane Market at the age of 14. Oftentimes he would ride to work with his Dad (former Store Director at Washington Square and Oakwood) and sweep the basement of the Oakwood store. At the age of 16, he was promoted to carryout. Throughout the years, he has worked in various departments contributing to the success of DLM. Since 2001 he has been Store Director for the Washington Square Store. He firmly believes that good customer service is the lifeblood of any business, and he can often be seen helping customers. The Chrisman legacy continues, as all three of his children have worked at Dorothy Lane Market.

Organic Produce

Dennis Chrisman, current Produce Director, fondly recalls working in the Produce department as a teenager. "I remember the day we brought in organic apples. They weren't as pretty or shiny and they cost twice as much as the other apples. At the time, no one knew what organic meant. I didn't know what it meant. However, years later, everyone knows what it means. We are proud that we were selling organic produce before it became mainstream. We've been in the organic produce business for over 20 years and we understand what it is and what it means to our customers."

We offer a choice between organic and conventional produce when the price difference is substantial. When the price difference is small or there is no difference, only the organic product will be offered.
