Delivery can be scheduled for the same day, next day or even as much as several weeks later, according to the Web site. Same-day delivery, and delivery at any time for orders less than $40, cost $8.95. Orders delivered next-day or after range in cost from $3.95 to $6.95, depending on order size.

Food Emporium will compete for online business in Manhattan with FreshDirect, a Web-only service.
