Google Team up with Barnes & Noble to take on Amazon Book Delivery



/ 5 years ago

From today, Google are joining forces with Barnes & Noble to offer a same-day book delivery service in selected areas of the United States.

Manhattan, West Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay will all be able to take full advantage of the Google Shopping Express Service partnership, which compounds on Googles already offered deliveries for stores such as Costco, Walgreens, Staples and Target. There are also plans to expand this new service to Brooklyn and Queens.

Barnes & Noble claim this partnership is an “attempt to link the digital and physical”. Will this move see Google and Barnes & Noble take some market share off the business giant Amazon? Only time will tell.

As much as competition is great, another obvious reason for this deal is a move away from slowly dieing brick-and-mortar stores and into the digital age.

Why not just buy an e-reader? Some people prefer the paper.

    Even with Google’s much vaunted punching power, victory is not assured here.
