shopping trolley

Post by twotoasters » Sun, 31 Aug 2008 7:19 pm

Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster.

Does anyone know where I can get a shopping trolley? I'm not too sure what those things are really called, but I see other people using them sometimes to take groceries home. The supermarket is a bit of a walk from where I live and I'm thinking a trolley would be a great help.

Thanks!

Shouldn't cost you more than $10 for one. Some places will be more expensive than others. :wink:

Positano, are you referring to the trolleys made by Reisenthel? I've seen them at Tang's and Takashimaya. They do look pretty, but it doesn't seem like they can take a beating. I'm looking for something inexpensive but fairly sturdy, so I can schlep it around without worrying too much about getting it damaged or dirty.

hi twotoasters, i don't know the name of the brand. a friend of mine bought one from Tangs and she loves it. i think there were only two designs available - she bought a blue and green design. another friend of mine bought hers from orchard towers and i don't know what the brand of that trolley bag is either. both friends are happy with the use of their trolleys so far. hope this helps.

I got mine from Giant at Vivocity for under $10. It's great, metal and cloth and folds up nicely. I actually got a metal one from NTUC but it's bigger and heavier. The cloth basket type folds up very well--even can take it on the bus or metro.
