Walmart customers in six states will soon be able to have their orders delivered by drone in less than 30 minutes.
Why it matters: This will be the first large-scale drone delivery operation in the United States. So far, drone deliveries have been available only in a few small towns, with customers selecting from a short list of items.

Driving the news: Walmart‘s DroneUp delivery network will expand to 34 sites by the end of the year, potentially reaching 4 million U.S. households, the retailer said.
- The new markets are Phoenix, Ariz.; Tampa and Orlando, Fla.; Dallas, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Richmond, Va. (Walmart already has limited drone delivery in Arkansas.)
- Drone delivery will be available 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. from at least three Walmart stores in each city.
