retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Tech Crunch reports that “Amazon is shutting down its two-year-old restaurant delivery service in London … Customers were sent emails which informed them of the change, saying they would no longer be able to order from Amazon Restaurants UK after Monday, December 3rd.”

The story notes that “in London, Amazon has faced fierce competition from local players, including Deliveroo and Uber Eats, the report noted. That may have contributed to its decision to shutter its business in that market.”

Amazon is still offering restaurant delivery in the US.
