Residents of Virginia Beach can now experience a truly innovative and convenient shopping experience of DroneUp.

Participating Stores: Three Walmart locations in Virginia Beach are currently offering this cutting-edge drone delivery service:

  1. Neighborhood Market #6226 1832 Kempsville Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23464
  2. Walmart Supercenter #3216 1149 Nimmo Pkwy, Virginia Beach, VA 23456
  3. Walmart Supercenter #2529 2021 Lynnhaven Pkwy, Virginia Beach, VA 23456

How It Works: Customers within the delivery zone can place their orders through the DroneUp app. The service boasts a remarkable selection of over 10,000 eligible Walmart items, including fragile items like eggs, which can be delivered in as little as 30 minutes. With no order minimums and a modest delivery fee of $3.99, this aerial delivery service offers a new level of convenience for local shoppers.

Delivery Process: Once an order is placed, Walmart associates carefully package and load the items into a specialized drone. Utilizing advanced technology, the drone then transports the order to the customer’s home. Upon arrival, the drone gently lowers the package into the customer’s yard using a cable, ensuring a safe and secure delivery. Walmart spokesperson, Lindsey Coulter, has detailed the process, reassuring customers of its efficiency and reliability.

Drone delivery services are revolutionizing the retail industry, offering unprecedented convenience and accessibility. For Virginia Beach Walmart customers, this cutting-edge service is sure to become an indispensable part of their shopping routine. With continued advancements in drone technology and partnerships like the one between Walmart and DroneUp, the sky’s the limit for retail convenience.
