DALLAS — Walmart is expanding its drone delivery in Dallas-Fort Worth, adding services to two locations in the coming weeks through Google’s drone delivery sister company, Wing.
The Walmart Supercenter at 8555 Preston Road in Frisco, which Walmart says is the “most-requested expansion area,” will be the first to get the new service in the coming months, and another, unannounced Walmart Supercenter location will also get drones this year. It joins the drones stationed at 11 stores in Dallas, Garland, Mesquite, Murphy, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett and The Colony.
Shannon Nash, chief financial officer at Wing said shoppers can order a range of products, including quick meals, groceries, household essentials and over-the-counter medicines.
Nash said that the services’ new hours of operation will be 10:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Walmart is also extending the service to six days a week, excluding Wednesdays.
Wing is a drone delivery company owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet, which has a remote operations center in Coppell, Texas. The retailer began drone deliveries in Dallas in December.
