Google is planning to expand its same-day delivery service for U.S. consumers, in an effort to compete with Amazon and other companies interested in jumping into the online shopping market. Google Express will expand to Boston, Chicago and Washington D.C., in addition to current markets in parts of California and New York City.




The service costs $10 per month - or $95 per year - slightly cheaper than the $99 per year cost of Amazon Prime. When consumers shop online, Amazon is one of their first stops while browsing, which is why Google hopes to shake up the industry a bit further.


Google is including additional retailers for its service, such as PetSmart and Vitamin Shoppe, with more retailers expected to jump on the bandwagon next year.
