Another delivery service bites the dust: YourGrocer shuts down
Melbourne-based delivery service YourGrocer has closed down its business as of today. The company allowed customers to order from various retailers and fresh food producers, which boomed during the pandemic.
Now that cities have opened up and things are returning to normal, the situation seems bleak for the food-delivery industry. The grocery delivery app Send shut down in May, followed by Voly in November. At the same time, UK-based Deliveroo exited the Australian market.
Morgan Ranieri, founder and CEO of YourGrocer, sent a farewell email to customers on Wednesday.
“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that YourGrocer is closing down for good as a company this Friday, December 16,” wrote Rainieri.
“This will be our very last day of deliveries. As hard as we’ve tried, we cannot keep the company going any longer, so we have been forced to cease operating.”
Rainieri informed customers that all orders scheduled from Monday would be cancelled and encouraged them to contact merchants directly.
“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment,” he concluded.
