“Trolley” and “carriage” are apparently 2 other “shopping cart” synonyms. No likey. It will forever be a cart to me. Sorry. The North wins this time.
When it comes to shopping carts in Charleston, though, let’s talk efficiency. (This kind of stuff is sadly important for us grown-ups.) Harris Teeter’s are pretty smooth. There’s a cup holder handy for my occasional Starbucks AND they have adorable mini-carts for kids to push around while shopping with their parents. Super cute! Whole Foods‘ carts must have Bentley wheels. But, I wouldn’t know. I’ve only been in there twice. It’s more like a museum to me…you should see their mushroom exhibit! Publix has the Cadillac of shopping carts – smoother than a baby’s bottom (hmm, not sure that worked)! Walmart’s carts are, well, Walmart’s. Soon enough, I’ll report back on Trader Joe’s carts because they’ll be in Charleston come June – yay!
p.s. Call ’em what you want, but please put them away before leaving the grocery store. Don’t be one of those people!
p.s.s. Wouldn’t shopping carts in the above colors make grocery shopping more fun?!
