Shopping Carts With Wheels (Trolley & Carriage)

One of the best things about living in Almuñécar & La Herradura is the walkability!  If you are in town, everything is just out your door, but sometimes you still need assistance getting things home.  This is when shopping carts with wheels come in handy.  Some of you may call them a shopping trolley or shopping carriage, but we just call it a good old shopping cart!

Many people have asked us where to buy shopping carts with wheels, so we thought it was time to just give you some of your options in writing here.

Things to consider when buying a Shopping Cart

  • Be sure it can be pushed or pulled, with 2 wheels or 4 wheels.
  • Check the height of handle to be sure it isn’t too high or low for you.
  • Is there a side pocket to store bags, keys or other small items?
  • What is the capacity or volume it can hold?
  • Is there an insulated cooler bag?
  • Is it constructed well to handle the weight of the groceries?
  • How far will you travel with the shopping cart? Make sure it is durable enough to make the trip regularly.
  • What type of opening does it have to load the groceries?  Some have a flap and others have a drawstring, which is easiest for you?
  • What type of fabric covers it?  Will you need something water resistant for those rainy days?
  • Of course the price will be something to consider when buying a shopping trolley.
  • How does it fold up or store in your home?  Will it hang on the wall or does it need to take up floor space?

The Local Chino Store Shopping Carts

You will find several of these stores around town and they have a little bit of everything.  This is the perfect option if you want a quick fix and need a shopping trolley right away.  They are usually open from Monday through Saturday and at times in the summer months on Sunday.  The prices tend to be a bit high and the quality of the shopping carts and materials vary.

The Hipermarkets  Shopping Trolley

If you can access Motril or Velez-Malaga, then you have even more options with the big hipermarkets.  You will find Alcampo in Motril and a small Carrefour as well.  In Velez-Malaga, you will find an Eroski off of the A7 highway.  Both of these are good options, if you have other things to purchase as well and make it worth the 25-30 minute drive.  They do have some shopping carriages/trollies, but there isn’t a huge variety of them.  You will have a few to select from and often from the 35-55 euro prices range.

Online Shopping Cart Options

There are also several options for purchasing a shopping cart online.  This is our preferred option, as we can see reviews, dimensions, quality and it is usually delivered the next day.
