A SHOP & CARRY® FOOD WAGON WORK?
If you walk to your food store, you
can still do so with your own Shop and Carry® food wagon. The Shop
& Carry® can be wheeled into the store to start shopping like
you always did before.
If you drive, just take apart your Shop and Carry® food wagon and
place it in your car. When you arrive you will find it faster to put together
your own Shop and Carry® food wagon than it is to find a metal wagon
without: a wobbly wheel, sticky handle bar, an annoying squeak or one
you don't have to wrestle with because it is stuck so tight in that compressed
pile of wagons. Just stack three containers, insert the M locks and
handle bars to start shopping with your own Shop and Carry® food wagon.
The optional curve front container just hooks on to the front.
The Shop and Carry® food wagon
is 40 1/8" (inches) in height, approximately 15" (inches) wide
and less than two feet long. An empty metal wagon will weigh as much as
50 pounds more than an empty Shop & Carry® Food Wagon fully assembled.
The Shop and Carry® food wagon is made to last many years. Even during
the coldest winter and hottest summer.
NOTE: If you have returnable bottles and cans in your state, use your
Shop and Carry® food wagon to hold and transport them back to the
store for your deposit refund.
NOTE: If you are doing some "light" shopping only bring the
top container of your Shop and Carry® food wagon.
When you are done food shopping, go
to check-out, as your food is scanned you save time placing your food
items back into your own Shop and Carry® food wagon. No paper bags,
no plastic bags, no bags of any type are needed! Your favorite supermarket
may also offer you additional savings for using your own Shop and Carry®
food wagon. Any program offered to customers using a Shop & Carry®
food wagon, may earn back your cost to buy your own Shop & Carry®
food wagon and then some. This is just one way your supermarket can say
thank you for helping to lower their operating expenses. See Supermarket
Benefits' Link on the right.
NOTE: Use top container for veggies and fruits to avoid using those plastic
bags the supermarkets provide on rolls. They are unnecessary with your
own Shop and Carry® food wagon. Besides, nobody enjoys trying to figure
out which end of those plastic bags actually open!
NOTE: For items like ice cream, and unpackaged goods,
we have optional clear plastic containers that are reusable and can be
kept in your own Shop and Carry® food wagon.
NOTE: Customers who shop at supermarkets with self-scan check-outs will
save time. Customers in any town or city following the recent steps taken
in San Francisco, that are geared to prevent the waste of paper and plastic
bags, will also be saving money. Why pay seventeen cents at check-out
for the bags, when no bags are needed with your own Shop & Carry®
In addition, when RFID tags* become
widely used, customers using their own Shop & Carry® food wagon
will eliminate the check-out line altogether. Just go to a separate check-out,
and with one wave of a receiving wand around your Shop & Carry®
food wagon, all your groceries are added up. No packing necessary, just
pay and go.
* Radio Frequency Identification Tags have already started to replace
the UPC bar codes.
With the Shop & Carry® food
wagon, you save time placing your groceries into your car; just three
or four Shop and Carry® containers instead of eight paper bags or
fourteen plastic ones. Also no more paper bags ripping or plastic bags
falling over and spilling food all around the car.
If you are walking back home be assured that your food doesn't get crushed
like in other types of metal wagons.
Carry individual containers (up to four), that can evenly distribute the
weight of your groceries, into your house or up your apartment stairs.
Compare up to four trips with Shop and Carry® containers with six
to eight trips with bags. If your building has an elevator, just wheel
your Shop and Carry® food wagon right on. Some people also use their
Shop and Carry® food wagon to bring laundry to and from the apartment
laundry room in the basement.
When you are not using your Shop and Carry® food wagon, just condense
it down to keep in a closet, hallway, car trunk or garage.
We trust that we have started to earn
your respect. The Shop & Carry® food wagon will make an immense
difference for our environment and our children's future.
