City A.M. reported that Uber will be launching same day grocery delivery in Washington DC, seeking to expand its' popular taxi app company. The program will only last a few weeks as a trial and Uber will see how customers respond to the new service. “The more you love it, the more likely it will last", Uber stated in a blog post. It makes sense to test the market and get the data needed to ultimately show if Uber can make it. The Uber Corner Store is the catchy name for it, which will allow shoppers to choose over 100 items for same-day delivery.

The mail giant lost $2 billion between April and June of this year. It did well with increasing its' shipping and package business by 6.6 percent compared to last year's numbers. It also expanded its' service to Sunday delivery. However, the out-go was just to much to overcome. There was a $1.5 billion increase in operating expenses as a result of workers compensation payments, which affected it's bottom line.

Online orders will be delivered by Google Shopping Express into West Los Angeles, Manhattan and the San Francisco peninsula. San Francisco is the birth city for same-day delivery by a number of retailers. Manhattan is one of the cities that Google Shopping Express already offers the service, therefore, it should be a quick implementation for Barnes & Noble there.
