The Google Now platform is about to send users notifications regarding the availability of products they search for online. The extension of Google Search will specifically look at local retailers in one's area, making the shopping recommendations easy to follow up on.

Alerts will be delivered via a Google Now card. Product information will also be provided alongside the retail listings regarding pricing and related store locations.

If interested in the particular items suggested, Google Now doesn't provide details on availability. Buyers will have to stop in at shops or call in advance. Nonetheless, the feature will certainly simplify ones need, especially when looking for specific products that are more or less hard to find.
