Mobile grocery firm Greer’s Markets has signed on as a technology development partner with Deuce Drone.

Also based in Mobile, Deuce Drone is launching product delivery services for several partner firms.

Deuce Drone announced this week that it will begin flights in November between Greer’s St. Louis Street Market and Innovation Portal, as it works to finalize autonomous flight and package handling systems. The drone firm will use drones of less than 55 pounds and carry a payload up to 10 pounds.

“We are excited to partner with Greer’s Markets. Our agreement is an excellent opportunity to apply our technology in an urban setting,” said Bill Haub, senior director of Deuce Drone. “Our previous demonstration flights have proven that we are able to overcome many difficult challenges facing drone delivery. This development partnership is a great next step in Deuce Drone’s growth by providing the possibility of seamlessly transitioning to delivery service in downtown Mobile.”

Greer’s spokesperson Lucy Greer added, “We are already invested in curbside pickup and delivery and look forward to offering an additional delivery option with Deuce Drone. “We continue to focus on technological advancements that make shopping Greer’s in store and online advantageous to all consumers.”
