Google is now doing everything in its power so that you never have to move away from staring at your computer screen.
The idea behind Google Express is fairly simple. It allows users to order products from a set of stores in a certain area, and have them delivered later that day. The service is being offered free to DC residents for three months. After that, users are required to pay one of the following: a $95 annual membership fee, $10 a month on a month-by-month basis or $4.99 per order.
As of its launch on Tuesday, Google Express will deliver products from the following stores within the District: Costco, Walgreens, Giant Food, Barnes & Noble, Staples, Babies “R” Us, Sports Authority, L’Occitane and Guitar Center.
Google Express launched about a year ago in San Francisco, and then expanded to Los Angeles and Manhattan.
