Shopping trolley

Post by Matney » Sun, 04 Jun 2006 6:41 pm

I have finally decided that I need to purchase a shopping trolley to put all my purchases in when I go to the wet market. I am looking for one which has a decent handle, as I am a taller person than the locals. I have borrowed my neighbours and realise that I must lean over to drag it along. Any suggestions on where to locate one. I live on the East side of this red dot. Thanks!

I saw a variety of the trolleys at Carrefour... you might want to check them out.

Thanks, but those are the short handled version. I was hoping that maybe someone may know of a 'taller' version. :wink:

May I ask how you went about that? Sounds interesting, but a great idea!

If your on the Eastside try the 'Howard Storage World' at the Parkway Parade Mall. A little more expensive but good quality and have ajustable stuff. I think it is an American chain store.

I'll check Howard's next time at Parkway, thanks! Not sure if they are a US based company, but they are definitely in OZ as well.

Kimm, just how did you get your trolley modified?

Bafana, wouldn't that be just a bit illegal, taking a trolley from the grocery to use as my own wet market trolley? A bit difficult getting up 60 steps full as well! :???: And I gurantee that after I get up those steps, I wouldn't be returning the trolley back to the shop! :wink:

Not that illegal lah - After all you have to pay a dollar ;)

I get the point on the steps though.
