Uber, the US food ordering and delivery platform, merged the Chilean grocery delivery app Cornershop into the Uber Eats app. Migrating the Cornershop app into Uber Eats is a final step to Uber’s 2020 acquisition of Cornershop.
Cornershop was Chile’s first unicorn when it received a $3B valuation in 2021.
Uber Eats integrated Cornershop’s delivery services from supermarkets, large stores, and pharmacies into its app. As Cornershop transforms into “Cornershop by Uber,” customers can still access the same features and stores that Cornershop had, but only through the Uber Eats app.
