Sriracha One Of The Most Popular Same-Day Orders On Google Shopping Express [Infographic]By: Chris Crum - May 1, 2014
As Amazon has expanded its same-day delivery service to additional cities, Google is showing what people buy the most with theirs.
The company has put out a new infographic looking at what San Francisco Bay Area shoppers are buying using Google Shopping Express. These range from soup to soil.
“in a single day, people around the Bay Area buy enough cat food through Google Shopping Express to feed about 1,500 cats!” says Jenna Owens, General Manager of Operations on Google Shopping Express. “While a lot of people are buying everyday essentials, they’re also using the service to buy some rather unexpected items like Sriracha hot sauce and tennis balls, which are among some of the most popular products ordered.”
“But not all neighborhoods around the Bay Area are filling their carts with the same items,” says Owens. “For instance, in San Francisco, people in Potrero Hill buy more cereal than any other neighborhood, while shoppers in Bernal Heights buy the most sunscreen. People in The Marina love getting protein powder delivered on the double, while Mountain View shoppers buy the most rock climbing gear. And when it comes to same-day spreads, people in San Jose buy more mayonnaise than any other city, while Palo Alto tops the list of Nutella purchases.”
No word on when Google Shopping Express might expand into more cities. Perhaps Amazon’s expansion will help kick it into gear. Right now it’s only available in the Bay Area and the Peninsula & San Jose area.
