Google goes same day delivery with Google Express in US

No primary category set

I came across Google Express when I was in the US last week and it’s a service rather like Amazon Prime Now that offers free delivery on a certain selection of goods if you’re in an eligible area.

At the moment these include: San Francisco, Peninsula & San Jose, Northern California, West Los Angeles, Manhattan, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC and the Midwest. The stores available differ by location. See here.

As it turned out I was in Downtown San Francisco so the service was available to me and they really punted it out as I was searching on Google.

It’s free delivery for a certain value of goods when you buy from the various stores they deliver for: for example, I spotted Target and Costco linking to the system. Then you choose a delivery window and get the stuff you want. Orders over a certain value are free but there is a subscription service too.

It’s an interesting new horizon for Google that, as far as I can see, they are only testing in the States just now but it’s notable to see Google make a foray into delivery.
