Google Product SearchGoogle announced they are bringing the nearby store and local availability options for Google Product Search to Europe, Australia and Japan.

Google launched this in the UK late last year and in the US in March of last year.

Now it is coming to Europe, Australia and Japan.

Ronald from Google in a Google Merchant Help thread said:

This week, we will be launching this feature for online shoppers in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and Australia. We're also launching a beta version of our Local Availability feature in Japan, the U.K., France and Germany, together with some top retailers in those countries, including Yodobashi Camera, Argos, Debenhams, HMV, Boulanger, and Hornbach. With Local Availability, we work directly with the retailer to tell you what they have available in their stores, and at what price. Whether you’re shopping for a last-minute gift or simply don't want to deal with shipping, you can quickly and easily find what you’re looking for.
