According to a recent report, the delivery of the future is upon us! At least 2 North Texas Walmarts in North Richland Hills.  The two locations offering the service will be the two Walmart Supercenter locations – 6401 NE Loop 820 and 9101 North Tarrant Parkway. Wfaa reports that the drones can carry up to 2.3 pounds, "designed for over-the-counter meds, movie-night snacks or the ingredient you realize you’re missing at the last minute," a Walmart press release said.

Operating hours will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and the new delivery service will be available to anyone within four miles of either store, including customers in neighboring cities.  The pilot program will last one year!  Wing will provide the service, Wing, a subsidiary of Google's parent company Alphabet.

Maybe the folks over at Walmart are finally hearing how most of the public feels about self-checkout. I know, personally, I have made many comments about the lack of open lanes or them having to check my receipt before I walk out! I am not the only one, the below post has been shared over 5 thousand times and there are more posts just like this floating around social media.

There has been a lot of talk about this topic lately. While Walmart is not doing away with self-checkout, they are going through a 'testing phase' moving forward. Have you noticed fewer self-checkout lanes open at your area Walmart?
