Google announced today that its Google Shopping Express same-day home delivery service has expanded and is now available in select parts of New York City and Los Angeles.
“Google Shopping Express offers convenient same-day delivery from some of your favorite local stores, delivered to your door in a matter of hours,” explains Jenna Owens, General Manager of Operations for Google Shopping Express. “All you have to do is browse products from many of your favorite local stores at google.com/express, select a delivery window that works for you, and receive your order later that day.”
Indeed, a number of big-name stores have signed on to offer their wares via Google Shopping Express, including Costco, Target, Staples, Walgreens and Babies 'R' Us. The new service is currently available in West Los Angeles (including Santa Monica and Venice) and in Manhattan, but don’t worry if you’re just outside the delivery zone. More areas of LA and NYC (including Queens and Brooklyn) are being adding “in the coming months.”
Google's new service isn't the only same-day shopping service available, especially for big city dwellers. Amazon Local Express Delivery, eBay Now and Walmart to Go all offer near instant gratification of your online purchases. For now, though, Google Shopping Express is definitely the cheapest. That's because the company is offering six months of free, unlimited deliveries and a $10 credit for new customers just to get you to try the service out.
Previously, Google Shopping express was only available in San Francisco. You can get started with Google Shopping Express by visiting google.com/express or by using the Google Shopping Express app [iOS] [Android].
