Was in ASDA today & found out that you don’t need a quid / token to release the trolleys from each other.
How long has that been happening? Can you tell I’m a sad lonely single basket user....
It's been ages now @Anonymous. They have designed the trollies to lock when you attempt to go past a certain strip on the exits of the car parks.
I could be wrong but I think the major supermarkets in my area are the same....except Lidl and Aldi
*The Game Is On*
I must admit that I didn't know. I dash around Asda on their free mobility scooters and I'm now quite the expert. I can drive those much better than I could drive motor bikes........
Ah, @Anonymous, it varies methinks: The big Tesco closest to us uses coins/tokens, t'other biggish Tesco about the same distance in the other direction from where we live lets you have a trolley without a token/pound/euro coin.
Sainsbury and Lidl both demand a token of some sort...
However, Lidl's in-store wheely basket things are quite big enough for a casual shop.
No Asda nearby, can't say how they do it these days.
Another thing lost from our youth and one the kids will look at with total suprise when we tell them you used to find a supermarket trolley in the canal, side of the road, local builders site....and sometimes the odd trolley from another supermarket attempting to blend in with Tesco's fleet of wonky wheels.
We had a couple of trolleys borrowed from the nearby Tesco in the workshop. When we hoisted the engines out of cars we lowered them into the trolleys so we could move them around. We had various wooden brackets to sit in them with cut-outs so that the engine sump could rest in the bracets. All done before they invented engine stands!
