Google Shopping Express - local delivery by Google

Google definitely has an announcement that is going to make you go 'What'. Google is getting into the same-day delivery business in a local context. In fact there is a pilot program being launched in the San Francisco Bay Area - if you live there here's your chance to get free deliveries for the next 6 months. Google is also on the lookout for testers. The way it works is like this, you purchase your product online and Google transport vehicles will come along pick it up and deliver it to your home.

The project has just been announced and this is what we can infer. There will be one place to do all your local shopping from your favorite retailers. Once you pay for the product, the next step will begin. You choose a time - select a delivery windows. Your goods get delivered to your home between the time period you selected. The delivery will happen in a nice truck with a smiling Google employee.

Strange as though it might seem, this is a business Google has decided to test and work-on. They already have retailers like Target, Walgreens and Office Deport who have signed up. In-fact Google has invited local businesses to be a part of the pilot program.
