Google expands same-day delivery service to New York and Los Angeles

Residents of Manhattan and parts of Los Angeles can now enjoy same-day deliveries courtesy of Google Shopping Express.

Coverage areas include Culver City, Inglewood, Marina del Ray, Santa Monica, Venice, West Los Angeles, Westwood, and the entire island of Manhattan in New York. Previously, the service was only available in the San Francisco Bay Area. Google also plans on expanding coverage in the coming months to encompass Brooklyn and Queens in New York as well as other locations in Los Angeles.

Google Shopping Express, which markets both groceries and non-edibles on the same platform, allows customers to have purchases made with participating outlets like Costco, Target, and Walgreens delivered on the same day.

The recent expansion looks to be part of Google’s ongoing efforts at gaining a foothold in the emerging on-demand-delivery space currently dominated by Amazon.
