Retailers offering Uber Eats and Deliveroo are concerned their pricing model will alter following a tie-up between the companies.

According to reports, the delivery service providers are negotiating a £1.5bn merger. One Stop retailer Sunder Sandher makes £500 a week since he began offering Deliveroo in 2016.

He said: “I double alcohol prices and Deliveroo customers don’t mind because it’s convenient. A merger means I couldn’t chase higher margins because Deliveroo has more affluent customers than Uber Eats.”

Mital Morar, of Ancoats General Store in Manchester, added: “Efficiency could improve, but I’m concerned about a reduction in competition.”
