Every household in Europe has one of these. For those of us in the U.S. — it should be a must. Great for students in dorms, seniors in a senior center, busy parents on the go, hip singles or even more hip oldsters! Lightweight and foldable for storing in the trunk of a vehicle, and while folded it can be placed in a traditional American shopping cart while you are in the store. When you are ready to checkout, load your purchases right into the cart and wheel to your vehicle where it can go fully loaded into the back seat. If you are lucky enough to walk to the store, or unlucky enough to make trips to the corner laundromat… it wheels right behind you. Easy-peasy.
