The tech giant in San Francisco announced Tuesday that users in Montreal and Toronto can now order groceries through its Uber and Uber Eats apps.

"They will be able to place orders with local merchants and receive them in one to two hours," Daniel Danker, who leads the Uber product team, told reporters.

A demonstration of the new service has seen thousands of items available from retailers such as Walmart, Metro, Costco, and more.

Uber believes it sees grocery stores as a natural extension of its booming food delivery service and as a way for the company to become a one-stop shop for each meal.
