Rochester's Roots: D&L Groceries

February 07, 2019 11:23 AM

ROCEHSTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- D&L Tropical Groceries is a black-owned grocery store in Rochester's 19th Ward. 

In 1985, Linford and Deloris Hamilton opened the store on Genesee Street and packed the shelves with hard to find African and Caribbean foods. 


Today, D&L Groceries is a go-to spot for Caribbean snacks and hot food.

The couple hopes to open a second location to accommodate the area's growing student population and out of town customers. 

Recognized by the City of Rochester for its commitment to the community.
