People in Frisco and Little Elm are about to be among the first to try out drone deliveries. Walgreens has been working with Wings, a drone delivery company operated by Google’s parent company Alphabet, and now plans to bring the fast delivery service to the North Texas area.

The program has had a successful two year test run in Virginia.

Walgreens will use the drones to deliver snacks, over the counter medicines, even beauty products to customers within a 4-mile radius of a store. Deliveries will arrive in 10 minutes or less.

No exact date yet on when drone deliveries will start in North Texas, only that it will happen in the coming months.
