The supermarket shopping cart hasn’t changed much over the years. Aside from the chopped version that recently appeared on the scene, the venerable stainless steel cart has remained unchanged for fifty years. Until now that is.
Last week when Peanut and I stopped into the Giant on Centre Park Drive we couldn’t find any of the small plastic hand baskets. There was a reason for this. They’d been replaced with a new hybrid basket that is really a cross between the wheeled cart and the hand basket.
Peanut liked wheeling around the two wheeled basket. I like it because I often found the old hand basket too small but the cart too big for my average grocery trip.
I’m also beginning to get the hang of the handheld scanners that Giant has introduced in some stores. The first couple of times I tried the handheld device I got frustrated at the checkout line because, like many guys, I didn’t read the instructions.
Nowadays I’m a regular scan man.
