With an aim of moving ahead of its image of taxi service provider, the taxi app company Uber is going to enter the pharma market by launching an on-demand product delivery service in Washington D.C.
The drug store, Corner Store, is set to be launched today and during the trial service, the company will offer on-demand delivery of medicine and other drug store products.
The company will be testing the new feature ‘Uber Corner Store’ for over the next few weeks in several parts of Washington, DC.
The announcement was made in the company’s blog post that was released this morning for a brief period and which was later pulled.
“[T]he more you love it, the more likely it will last,” the company said in a blog post.
Following is the full list of items that Uber will deliver:
· Allergy Relief
· Bath & Body
· Cold & Cough
· Digestion & Nausea
· Eye Care
· First Aid
· Feminine Care
· Hair Care
· Men’s Grooming
· Oral Care
· Pain Reliever
· Sleeping & Snoring Aids
· Sexual Wellness
· Vitamins & Supplements
· Women’s Beauty
Under the trial service, which is starting from Tuesday, a limited set of Uber users can place their orders via Uber’s app of the above mentioned store goods including allergy medicine, toothpaste, diapers, beauty or maternity products.
Recently, Uber completed a funding round valuing it at USD 18.2 billion.
The experiment will continue for a few weeks. But, Uber hints that “the more you love it, the more likely it will last.”
Insiders say the company will carry extensive audience research and ecord their feedback in the coming weeks and depending on the results of the test, they may launch Uber’s Corner Store in other cities soon.
