Google Express adds Best Buy, Party City, hhgregg, and a whole lot of other new stores

This past summer we saw a lot of new stores come on board with Google Express, Google's one-stop-shop for, well, shopping. But while there's been a boatload of new retailers selling their merchandise through Google's online storefront, we've definitely noticed a trend away from big-name companies and towards a lot of more specialist stores.

Of those social networks, Instagram is probably the most appealing — it's all about the pictures and videos, and there's nothing better than visuals to spot what's new and cool.
