Walmart said back in May that it would be bringing drone delivery service to Dallas, and it’s finally here, depending on where you live.
Drones are stationed at 11 stores in Dallas, Garland, Mesquite, Murphy, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett and The Colony.
Thursday’s launch is the first time customers in Texas can try the service. Walmart and DroneUp, a company Walmart invested in in June 2021, have already been operating in Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Utah and Virginia.
Here’s how it works:
- Orders can be placed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. through DroneUp at droneupdelivery.com.
- More than 10,000 Walmart items are available, including a dozen eggs.
- There’s no minimum dollar amount per order, but there is a charge of $3.99 per delivery.
- You have to have a yard, driveway or walkway where the drone can place the package.
To order, you have to live within a mile of one of these stores:

The region’s first drone deliveries started earlier this year in Frisco and Little Elm by Walgreens and Wing, a drone delivery company owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet.
Wing just opened a remote operations center in Coppell that will allow it to expand its delivery capabilities in North Texas.
