With COVID-19 showing no signs of slowing down, more and more companies are getting into the grocery delivery game. With Amazon Fresh and Instacart catching heat for their ethics and treatment of delivery drivers, area supermarkets have tried to keep up with demand for delivery service. Delivery slots began filling up quickly and many stores were unable to keep up with the demand. There might be a new option for customers to get their groceries delivered.
Uber announced earlier in the week that it will pilot a new grocery delivery service across select cities in the United States. Uber is partnering with Cornershop to test its new service in Miami and Dallas. Uber Eats and Eats Pass members will get free delivery on grocery orders over $30.
“Whether you need to get to work, order dinner for your family, or earn a little extra to meet your goal, we have you covered,” Uber shared in a post.
Cornershop is a start-up that specializes in grocery delivery and will be Uber’s main partner in this new venture. Cornershop team members will be fulfilling and delivering orders. Customers interested in the service will be able to place their orders on the Uber and Uber Eats app.
