“Our same-day and overnight services, combined with the buy online
in-store pickup option made available at all PetSmart stores nationwide
in the fall of 2014, offer delivery options for pet parents when and
where they want to shop for their various pet food and related
pet-supply needs,” said Eran Cohen, executive vice president of customer
experience, PetSmart, Inc. “Our on-demand store-to-door delivery gives
pet parents the comfort that PetSmart can deliver on their immediate
needs to keep their beloved pets happy and healthy – even at a moment’s
notice.”

For both same-day and overnight service options, shoppers can purchase
items for store-to-door delivery via the PetSmart-branded store on the
Google Express website or the Google Express mobile apps for Android and
iOS. Nearly all items available in PetSmart stores can be purchased and
delivered through both services, giving pet parents expanded delivery
options to meet their more immediate needs.

Google Express membership is $95/year with benefits including unlimited
free delivery on eligible orders and the ability to share the membership
with a household member. Non-members can also enjoy Google Express
benefits by paying a $4.99 per store-to-door delivery fee on orders
totaling $15 or more per store with a $3 small-order fee for orders
under $15.

Google Express brings the speed of the web to shopping by helping people
shop their favorite stores online — in a single place. When customers
can’t make it into their local PetSmart store, the same-day and
overnight services makes it easy for customers to order the items they
need via mobile or desktop devices with on-demand delivery directly to
their homes.
