DUBUQUE/DAVENPORT, IA - Today, Google announced that Google Express, a next day delivery service, is expanding in the Midwest and arriving in Dubuque and Davenport.
Google Express brings the speed of the web to the real world by helping consumers shop their favorite stores online—in a single place. As of today, Dubuque and Davenport area residents can shop from national stores like Costco, Toys R Us and Barnes & Noble; and specialty stores like L'Occitane and PetSmart and get delivery the very next day.
Google Express is available to shoppers in six states and today’s expansion across the Midwest is the first geographic expansion since last Fall, when the service expanded to Chicago, Boston and Washington, DC.
"Our goal with Google Express is to offer a great shopping experience and connect people with their favorite stores. Today, we're very excited to be further expanding our efforts - making it easy for over 25 million people in the Midwest to get things they need from stores they love - delivered overnight," said Brian Elliott, General Manager, Google Express.
In addition to helping Dubuque and Davenport area customers get their items faster, Google Express also benefits local merchants by extending their reach to new customers throughout the region, and increases discoverability of their store and products.
Currently, shoppers can sign up for the unlimited delivery membership for $95 a year/ $10 month or can get a la carte delivery for $4.99 per store. Google Express is also offering a three-month free trial for new members.
