Google Express delivery expands along the East Coast

Residents of a dozen states now get two-day shipping for their online orders.

East coast residents now have a new way to shop online. Google announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its Google Express online delivery service to a dozen states throughout the Northeast. Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont are all now within Google Express' delivery range.

Users can order from a variety of online retailers including CostCo, Whole Foods, PetSmart through Express' single UI, then receive their orders two days later (or same day if you pay extra). It's structurally quite similar to Amazon Prime except you're able to order from a bunch of different retailers rather than a monolithic fulfilment center. Additionally, customers in New York can choose between the standard $95 per year subscription model or opt for a $5-plus per order, pay-as-you go system.
