Farewell Google Express, We Never Really Knew Why You Existed, Anyway

Google Express was the shopping website/portal that never really knew what it wanted to be when it grew up. Not to be confused with the “Shopping” tab when you Google an item, this was a separate service. You could search for an item and it would show you which one, of several online stores you’d never heard of before, carried it and what price you’d pay.
