Jewel-Osco, the largest traditional grocery store chain in the Chicago area, plans to launch a delivery service next week — the latest bricks-and-mortar grocery retailer to leap into online sales.

Beginning Tuesday, most Chicago-area residents will have the option of ordering groceries online for delivery through Jewel-Osco’s new e-commerce department, according to the company. Orders will be shopped from 11 stores, covering a large swath of the Chicago area, and delivered for a fee ranging from 95 cents to $9.95 depending on the size of the order, time of day and window of time selected.

Unlike some competitors, such as Mariano’s and Meijer, that partner with third-party services, Jewel is handling order fulfillment and delivery itself — though Jewel shoppers will continue to have the option to use Instacart instead.
