Uber to Shut Down its Alcohol Delivery Service
Uber is shutting down its Alcohol Delivery Service app, Drizly, from March 31, 2024. From this date, Drizly won’t operate as a standalone app but will be integrated into Uber Eats, which would allow Uber Eats users to order alcohol alongside food and other items. This latest decision also involves shutting down Uber’s grocery shopping app, Cornershop. Similar to Drizly, its features will be folded into Uber Eats for a unified delivery experience. Overall, this move seems to be a part of Uber’s cost-cutting strategy and also to give a more streamlined and comprehensive experience to its UberEat customers.
