BevMo partners with Google Express for same-day delivery

Specialty beverage retailer BevMo has partnered with Google Express (NASDAQ:GOOG) so that shoppers can receive same-day delivery in San Francisco, the Peninsula and San Jose, California.

BevMo is the first specialty alcohol retailer to join the list of retailers working with Google's online, same-day shopping service.

"Our number one goal is to make shopping for beverages as fun as drinking them, and a key part of that is ensuring we make it simple for our customers to explore and shop a wide selection," said BevMo CEO and chief BevMologist Alan Johnson. "We work to fit into our customers' lifestyles, enabling them to shop when and how they like, which is why we are excited to introduce BevMo to Google Express. Now, shoppers have even more access to same day shopping for family gatherings, office parties, dinner with friends and more."

BevMo already had local delivery, complimentary for orders greater than $500, and free in-store pickup within one hour of ordering online.

Google Express offers groceries, office supplies and household goods from about 15 local retailers, including Target (NYSE:TGT), Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM), Costco (NASDAQ:COST), Office Depot (NYSE:ODP) and Walgreens (NYSE:WAG).

Google has been ramping up its Shopping Express service this year in an effort to compete with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). The service, which launched in San Francisco, is now available in New York and Los Angeles.
