Google’s nascent e-commerce delivery service Google Express is set to add fresh foods to its delivery capabilities in San Francisco and at least one other city, according to a report published Tuesday.
Google Express has been providing grocery delivery in partnership with retailers including Costco, and Whole Foods Market for around a year. According to a report published Tuesday by Bloomberg, the offerings in San Francisco and another unnamed location will now include fresh produce.
"For a lot of our merchants that have been successful with this, we’re not representing the whole store today," Brian Elliott, general manager of Google Express, told Bloomberg. “It’s in our incentive, as well as the merchant’s incentive, for us to help customers get the full store delivered to them.”
Google Express also said Tuesday it was expanding its basic service in Central Ohio and Michigan. As in other cities, its retail partners include Costco, Toys ‘R Us and Petsmart.
