Seems like Amazon has their hand in a little bit of everything these days. But, it looks like they can’t be good at everything. They have announced that they will be shutting down their Amazon Restaurants delivery services effective June 24th. Looks like competitors like my favorites, Doordash and UberEats will continue to dominate in this space. I’m a big fan of these services as they save me a lot of time!
