Oh yes, it’s happening: same-day delivery service competition between Google and Amazon. In the latest iteration of this ongoing journey towards the best same-day delivery, Google has expanded its Google Shopping Express service to Culver City, Inglewood, Marina del Ray, Santa Monica, Venice, West Los Angeles, Westwood, and the entire island of Manhattan. In the coming months, Google also plans to extend that coverage into Brooklyn and Queens, as well as other areas of LA.
By the way, a refresher as to what Google Shopping Express is: it delivers groceries and non-edibles on the same platform, so purchases can be made with Costco, Target, Walgreens, L’Occitane, Toys ‘R Us, and others, which then are delivered the very same day.
