After weeks of rumorsGetir has announced that it is acquiring Gorillas. This is a major consolidation deal for the instant grocery delivery space. The Financial Times first reported that Getir has closed the acquisition of its competitor. TechCrunch has confirmed the news with Getir.

“Markets go up and down, but consumers love our service and convenience is here to stay. The super fast grocery delivery industry will steadily grow for many years to come and Getir will lead this category it created 7 years ago,” Getir founder Nazim Salur said in a statement.

Getir originally launched its service in Turkey in 2015. Over the past couple of years, many people started ordering groceries online because of lockdown restrictions. Getir, Gorillas, Flink and a cohort of startups tried to popularize a new model for grocery deliveries.

Instead of reserving a delivery slot for the next day, orders are processed instantly on those apps. The user experience works more like food delivery services, such as Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Just Eat Takeaway. You open an app, pick a few items, hit the order button and track your order from your phone.

Those services raised a ton of money and grew at a rapid pace during the COVID-19 pandemic. Behind the scenes, all those instant delivery startups built networks of dark stores in dense cities so that orders can be delivered in less than an hour.


“Here’s a comment: “With cost of living increasing, the demand for food/grocery delivery services is declining. It seems natural that we will continue to see more consolidations in this section.”
