Google Express Expands Delivery Service in Northeast

Google Express, the speedy delivery service from Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG,GOOGL), is expanding to more areas in the Northeast.

google express goog stockGoogle Express is now available to all residents living in New York City and the rest of the state. The expansion also includes other states along the East Coast. This starts with Maine and stretches down to Virginia.

Google Express is mostly partnering with major retailers, such as Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST), Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE:KSS), Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) and others. It plans to expand its service to the rest of the United States by the end of the year. It said this is easier with major retailers and that it wants to add more local shops after it completes its expansion, New York Post notes.

United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE:UPS) and FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX) are among the delivery companies that handle orders made through Google Express. Delivery times can differ depending on where a person lives. This includes same-day delivery, overnight delivery and two-day delivery.

Google Express will set customers back $95 a year, but members get free deliveries. Non-members can also use the service, but it will cost them $4.99 for each store they order from. Customers can also get a three-month free trail. This membership can be shared with a single person living in the same house.

Google Express’ expansion plans could line it up as a solid rival to Amazon.com, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime Now service. Prime Now requires customers to buy a yearly subscription, which costs $99, of Amazon Prime before it can be used.
