retail news in context, analysis with attitude

GeekWire reports that Uber’s new package delivery service, called UberRUSH, "is expanding with some big-name partners like Nordstrom, SAP, T-Mobile, and perhaps most notably, Google ... it is moving beyond helping smaller brick-and-mortar retailers deliver packages and is now working with larger businesses that need help moving product from one place to another."

The program was successfully piloted in New York, San Francisco and Chicago, and the company says that there are more than 1,000 business partners using UberRUSH at this point.
KC's View:
I think it only makes sense that we're going to start seeing some merging of companies and services as appropriate. There can't be a thousand winners, and so companies will be well advised to start looking for synergies that will be good for both shoppers and businesses.
