Google's attractive overnight delivery service, Google Shopping Express, is expanding into northern California. Berkeley, Concord, Danville, Dublin, Fremont, Oakland, Pleasanton, Richmond, and Walnut Creek are just some of the new areas included in the expansion. Over the next couple of months, Google is hoping to get the service right up to the Oregon border, and down to Fresno. Local stores like Blue Bottle Coffee, Costco, Google Play, Office Depot, Staples, Target, Walgreens, and Whole Foods are all included.
Though relatively new, Google Shopping Express is already operating in Manhattan and L.A., plus they're still offering six months of free deliveries for new users and tossing in $10 worth of goods for new users. Prices on items are exactly the same as they are in-store.
In the grand scheme of things, Google Shopping Express is still fairly limited in geographic scope, and eventually competing with Amazon Prime could turn into troublesome territory, but even if it's just for getting Google goods to your door faster, I think we're all eager to see this project succeed.
Are any of you living in the new areas serviced by Google Shopping Express? (You can find out if your are here.) How often do you get stuff delivered to your front door?
