Uber users will soon see a 'grocery' button in ride-hailing, Eats apps

Uber started as a ride-hailing app in 2009, but it expanded into restaurant delivery in 2014. Now, it’s offering groceries.

On Tuesday, Uber added grocery delivery in its app through Chilean startup Cornershop. To begin, users in 19 Latin American and Canadian cities can use the new option to buy groceries from major stores like Walmart, Metro, Lider, Jumbo, and others. By the end of this month, groceries are supposed to arrive in Dallas and Miami to kick off U.S. deliveries.

In the Uber and Uber Eats apps there’ll now be a tab for groceries for users in these cities: Campinas, Goiania, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Salvador, Concepción, La Serena, Santiago, Valparaiso, Bogota, Lima, Florianópolis, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Montreal, and Toronto.  Read more…
