Google Shopping Express Launches Overnight DeliveryBy: Chris Crum - June 3, 2014
Google announced on Tuesday that Google Shopping Express is bringing overnight delivery to Northern California (from Fresno and Porterville in the south to Eureka and Crescent City in the north).
The new overnight service is available immediately in East Bay cities including Berkeley, Concord, Danville, Dublin, Fremont, Oakland, Pleasanton, Richmond, Walnut Creek, etc. It will be rolling it out to “most” of Northern California over the next few months (from the California-Oregon border to cities like Fresno and Visalia in the south).
Google says on its commerce blog:
With overnight delivery from Google Shopping Express, customers are able to shop from some of their favorite retailers on one site (google.com/express) – from well-known brands like Target, Walgreens and Whole Foods Market, to San Franciso-based favorites they might not have convenient access to, like Blue Bottle Coffee, Dodo Case, PhotoJojo and Timbuk2, among others.
Simply place your order by 7:00 PM and you’ll receive your delivery the next day. You can also easily shop while you’re on the go through our Android and iOS apps. Once you’ve ordered your items, we’ll work with major shipping carriers to deliver them from the store to your doorstep.
Partner stores include: Blue Bottle Coffee, Cole Hardware, Costco, DodoCase, Fry’s Electronics, Google Play, Guitar Center, Hassett Hardware, L’Occitane, Nob Hill Foods, Office Depot, Palo Alto Sport Shop & Toy World, PhotoJoJo, REI, Smart & Final, Staples, Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us, Target, Timbuk2, Walgreens, and Whole Foods Market.
Google Shopping Express has offered safe-day delivery in the Bay Area and Peninsula & San Jose area for some time. Last month, it expanded into Manhattan and Los Angeles. It said it would be adding Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, West Hollywood, Queens and Brooklyn in the coming months.
