Google’s big announcement for Manhattanites
Google is branching out and taking over the world in yet another way: home delivery. On Monday, Google launched its newest enterprise, Google Shopping Express, a delivery service for Manhattanites that gets online purchases to you the same day you place the order. It’s like the Seamless of home shopping.
If you live in one of the outer boroughs and feel left out, don’t worry — Google is looking to expand Google Shopping Express within the coming months. Currently, the service costs $4.99, and you can order merchandise from Target, Walgreens, Babies “R” Us, Costco, Fairway, Staples, Guitar Center and L’Occitane.
For more information or to use the service, head to google.com/express.
