Uber is testing out same-day grocery delivery in Washington, DC. While this may be an attempt to bridge freelance drivers’ quiet time, it is an interesting foray into grocery delivery that other tech companies have made. In test stage, fresh produce is not offered, prices are comparable to brick-and-mortar retailers, and shoppers can get a $1 purchase delivered without any fees.
Will Uber be able to compete Amazon Fresh, Google’s Shopping Express and Instacart? As shoppers, what are your decision criteria to buy groceries from these tech firms? #MarsTalk
