Shopping Cart

Shock troops of shopping

Usually, opening parties include champagne, canapes and a lot of people standing around. Swedish retail behemoth H&M's launch on Thursday had four floors of guests rushing merchandise.

Trolley trauma

It is a little known fact that the time you spend queuing in the supermarket is equivalent to half your adult life, so it's not surprising that things can get a little tense among the gridlocked shopping trolleys. If that wait isn't tortuous enough, you have to contend with the marketing ploy of displaying the sweets within grasping distance of little hands.

Many trolleys found long way from 'home'

I find it difficult to sympathise with your correspondent J Lau who had problems with a wobbly front wheel on his airport trolley (South China Morning Post, October 29).

My experience of the airport suggests that he could readily have exchanged it for one without a wobble.

Unwelcome 'shopper'

I am concerned about an incident at the Wellcome Perkins Road supermarket, which occurred on the morning of Friday, January 26.

A customer was transporting her dog in a Wellcome basket that was then placed in a shopping trolley. Surely there are health regulations regarding animals being transported in conveyances used for foodstuffs intended for human consumption.

Watch as you shop

CONSUMERS doing their weekly shopping could soon be watching the news at the same time - on their shopping trolley.

The ''Videocart'' has an in-store communications network which uses a sensor located in the ceiling to send information to a computer display mounted on the shopping trolley.

Column Eight

LIVING here for 12 years and deaf to the melodies of Cantonese, the surprises never stop coming. I have only just discovered why Hongkong people do not use shopping baskets. They are rude. They are downright lewd, licentious and ''blue'' or - if you had congee on your cornflakes this morning - ''yellow''.
