Google launched Shopping Express in San Francisco last year, and now it is expanding its same-day delivery service outside of the Bay Area and into West Los Angeles and Manhattan, New York.
Available via Android and iOS mobile apps and the Web (google.com/express), Shopping Express brings groceries and other purchases from local stores to your door at a time that is convenient to you that day. Google charges no mark-up or fee, and the service can be used to claim in-store loyalty points and discounts against reward cards.
Google says it is working with the same retailers as it does in the Bay Area, they include Costco, L’Occitane, Walgreen’s and Staples. The company has plans to expand in LA — to cover Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, West Hollywood and beyond — and in New York, where it plans to reach shoppers in Queens and Brooklyn “in the coming months”.
