Walmart Launches Drone Delivery Service In Phoenix

Walmart (WMT) has launched its drone delivery service for select customers in the Phoenix market.

The company on Thursday announced that the new delivery option will be fulfilled from 4 stores, "making it easier than ever for customers to grab those last-minute gifts."

The retail giant had previously announced its plans to expand its DroneUp network to reach four million additional households across 6 states, including Arizona.

"Drone delivery makes it possible for our customers to shop those last-minute or forgotten items with ease, in a package that's frankly really cool. Being on the forefront of that innovation at Walmart is something we're proud of," said Vik Gopalakrishnan, vice president, innovation & automation, Walmart U.S. "It may seem like a futuristic option, but it's giving our customers what they've always wanted, and that's time back to focus on what is most important to them."
