Walmart Rolls Out a New Delivery Option, But It’s Only In Certain Areas

Walmart has confirmed that it’s rolling out delivery by drones for even more customers. The grocery giant said air deliveries are now available for 75% of the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. The superfast delivery is an expansion of a deal with drone delivery company Wing, owned by Google, that began last year with delivery from two stores in the Dallas metro area that covered 60,000 homes. The four new supercenters are in North Richland Hills (two stores), Frisco, and Lewisville. Homes within a 6-mile radius of those stores can use the service. Drones have already delivered more than 20,000 customer orders, and the discount store plants to eventually have the largest drone delivery footprint of any U.S. retailer. The drone delivery fee is set at $3.99 for deliveries that meet the weight requirement, which is up to 10 pounds. To order groceries, customers must download the Wing app and enter their address to ensure they’re in a serviceable area.
