Getir to acquire q-commerce rivals Weezy

Q-commerce carrier Getir has announced it is to acquire rivals Weezy in a move the company says “solidifies Getir’s long-term commitment to the UK market”.

UK company Weezy is known to have been looking for a buyer for some time. It had approached Gopuff earlier this year but was rebuffed. Getir confirmed it had reached a definitive agreement for the acquisition this week.

Founded in the UK in 2019, Weezy has struggled to get market share even through the pandemic boom in demand for q-commerce. It was reported by industry media that it had shuttered a quarter of its dark store customer fulfilment centres and that delivery volumes had dropped dramatically in recent weeks.

Turkey based Getir launched in the UK in January this year and now operates in 15 towns and cities that include London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool. Weezy meanwhile has a presence in Manchester, Brighton and Liverpool.
