How Many Names Are There For The Shopping Cart?

The Shopping Cart Seems To Be A Universal Symbol For Shopping In Various Venues Across The Globe . . .

I know here in the United States we have several names for the shopping cart.

Some refer to it as a basket . . . In the south it is common to hear someone calling it a buggy . . . On the east coast we have the name carriage being applied. I had a friend from Hawaii who referred to it as a wagon.

In European countries and Australia it is referred to as a trolley . . . I rather like that. 

shopping cart  is a wheeled cart supplied by a shop or store, especially supermarkets, for use by customers inside the premises for transport of their grocery or other items.

I Find It Interesting How These Variations Refer To Various Previous Modes Of Transportation

I’ve Always Been Curious About The Various Names Given To An Item As Common As A Shopping Cart

As an American, I’m finding we’re a mix of numerous cultures. This could stem from our ethnic backgrounds and it could also be regional as to geography insofar as where we were raised or where are parents and grandparents were raised. We pick up local expressions and those that are used commonly among our family and friends.

It’s also common to pick up expressions from literature, television and movies. 

I am curious if what you refer to as a shopping cart was not addressed here. Please be so kind as to leave it in the comment section of this blog.

I do thank you for stopping by and hope this was both entertaining and enlightening to you as it was to me.
