Google delivering groceries might sound like a stretch, but the company will reportedly partner with Whole Foods and Costco to do just that.
The search-engine giant, which continues to expand its various business ventures, will reportedly start delivering groceries in San Francisco and an as-yet-to-be-named city by the end of the year. Google competitor Amazon started its delivery service in San Francisco earlier this year.
Online groceries currently represent $10.9 billion in sales annually, and growth is expected to increase 9.6 percent annually, according to research firm IbisWorld.
