Google Expanding To Fresh Grocery Delivery In Los Angeles
Google disclosed on Wednesday that it is expanding its Google Express service to include fresh groceries in Los Angeles and San Francisco, at least in parts of those cities, as part of an expansion of the same day delivery service. Google already offers up delivery of nonperishable goods from such local supermarkets as Whole Foods, Costco, and Smart and Final, but the new expansion also adds produce, meat, and eggs to the mix. Google offers up a wide range of products from retailers such as Target, Walgreens, Staples, and others in the LA market. The new service competes with similar offerings from Instacart, Amazon.com, and others.
