Nearly a year ago, Google began testing its same-day delivery service in a small area of the Bay Area in California. Part of the Google Shopping Express service, the same day delivery shipping was available with a handful of retailers and only to a handful of people. Today, however, the company has announced that Shopping Express is now open to everyone living or working in the Bay Area delivery zone, which runs from San Francisco to San Jose. Same-day delivery is available from a variety of local and national businesses, including American Eagle, Blue Bottle Coffee, Lucky, Office Depot, Palo Alto Toy & Sport, Photojojo, Raley’s Nob Hill Foods, Staples, Target, Toys“R”Us/Babies“R”Us, and Walgreens.
In addition to expanding the service to more people, Google has also launched a Shopping Express app for both iOS and Android. The app allows you to easily buy goods from all of those retailers and have them shipped to your door on the same day.
For a limited time only, Google is offering six months of free, unlimited same-day delivery. Normally, the shipping runs $4.99 per store order.
