Lexington, Ky. – Google Express, a new overnight delivery service offered by the ubiquitous online behemoth, expanded its services into three Kentucky communities yesterday.
Louisville, Lexington and Radcliff were all included in the Google Express expansion into more Midwest areas. The service also went live in Cincinnati yesterday.
Google Express allows users to pay an annual $95 membership fee for unlimited deliveries, and Google Express is offering a three-month free trial for new members. Customers can also pay a la carte: $4.99 per order, per store.
Different from other online shopping and delivery services, such as Amazon Prime, Google has partnered with national chains in a given area where customers can shop from. Some of the partners include Costco, Toys R Us, Staples, PetSmart, Walgreens, and Whole Foods. Customers visit the Google Express website to shop for a variety of items, and a local Google courier picks up the items to be delivered the next day.
