FIRST SHOPPING CART ON THIS DAY IN 1937

shoppingcart 

One of the first shopping carts was introduced by Sylvan Goldman,
(below) owner of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain in Oklahoma
City
. The cart was a simple metal folding frame that held two wire
baskets. Goldman called his carts “folding basket carriers”. A store
mechanic at Piggly Wiggly developed a method to mass produce 
the carts by inventing an assembly line capable of forming and
welding the wire baskets.
