business news in context, analysis with attitude

The joke may have been that Walmart would invest in anti-aircraft guns to shoot down the Amazon drones that some expect to be covering the landscape, delivering products, in fairly short order.

But the Wall Street Journal reports that its Sam's Club division "is betting drones will be a popular holiday gift this year and plans to stock about a dozen kinds—from $100 models to $4,000 versions with high resolution cameras or the ability to pick up small objects."

Sam's officials reportedly got interested in drones when they noticed that one version with a $1,169 was selling well on its website, and a survey of customers confirmed that this could be a big holiday season for drone sales.

Costco reportedly does not sell drones. Yet.
