Citing the popularity of its current DJI drone offering, retail warehouse chain Sam's Club is reportedly planning to start selling a number of different unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in order to up company sales.
According to an article from the Wall Street Journal, the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ has sold online like hotcakes – with buyers ranging from hobbyists, professional photographers and real estate agents, a Sam’s Club survey revealed. The retailer offers the aircraft on its website for $1,169.
Rosalind Brewer, CEO of Sam’s Club, said at a press conference that the retailer wants to “re-engage” customers by offering the emerging technology, says the WSJ, adding that Sam’s Club also feels that the drones – which will be offered in a dozen varieties – will sell well during the upcoming holiday season.
