Our Aluminum Shopping Cart is a classic that's indispensable for trips to the grocery store, farmers' market, flea market or laundromat. It's remarkably roomy and lightweight thanks to its aluminum construction. It easily accommodates a couple of paper grocery sacks or laundry bags, and is also convenient for storing and transporting toys, gardening necessities and pool supplies. Assembly is simple - following the picture on the label, just slide back the u-shaped clip on the axle, pop on the wheel, and the release clip - that's all there is to it!

  • Durable yet lightweight aluminum construction; silver powder-coated finish
  • Rear axel brake; heavy-duty wheels; foam grip handle; see assembly guide for wheel-mounting instructions
  • 60 pound capacity; folds to a compact 10" width for storage
  • A liner for the interior is available (sold separately, listed below)

Aluminum Shopping Cart & Liner is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I purchase this sooner? I have had my cart since approx.2008 and while it has seen better days in terms of appearance it is still "running!" I added this cart liner and not only does it serve a terrific purpose but it also makes the cart look nice! Now I can hide my laundry bag inside of the cart liner + nobody needs to know my destination when they see me walking! It is quite smart and stylish; the velcro is placed perfectly on each side and the color is appropriate. Why didn't I get this sooner? If you are purchasing the cart I suggest you purchase the liner as well, poste haste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Three Wheels Instead of Four I requested sturdier wheels about ten years ago because one always popped off. One time the cart collapsed in traffic on St. Paul's busiest street. It was a pain in the neck to repair. It popped off again recently and again I requested that it been made sturdier.. This cart is ingenious except for that wheel. It seems to me that a good company would address this problem. If you buy this cart, you need to know how to reattach the bad wheel or have someone to do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Quite Perfect The is a great, sturdy cart. It holds two full grocery bags side by side. The problem is that the left front wheel keeps falling off. So far I was able to put it back on, but if it rolls out of sight, the cart will be useless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NEEDS BETTER WHEELS I purchased this in store, after a different one I had for 10 years finally broke. I had gotten that one at container store. I was disappointed to see it was no longer made. It was more like the 2 wheel carts but the bag was not removable & was solidly stuck to platform. anyhow, I decided to get this aluminum cart, which is not as agile. If you are going straight, no problem, BUT if you are turning in any way, this thing won't turn easily. It's a problem..they should have put more thought into this & given it swivel wheels that can rotate in any direction. This goes for all their shopping carts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, except the wheels I love the cart, but the wheels not rotating is a huge pain. It's very difficult to turn. The quality is there, but I wouldn't purchase it again. Too bad, because it looks great, works well (otherwise), and is very lightweight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for anyone 5'3" or under. Sturdy little cart, but I'm giving mine away to a petite relative. This cart is wide with a narrow base and a very short handle. I used it once,today, and found that at my not-very-great- height of 5'7", if I pushed, I had to watch my step. As I was bent forward to reach the handle, my feet were much too close to the base and I was constantly shortening my steps to push this little gem. If I pulled it, the short handle kept it at my side rather than behind me, so again, it was a nuisance to me and anyone attempting to walk next to me. Too bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love this cart but one wheel falls off I purchased this cart in May in order to carry grocery items from my car and to carry food to the grills for cookouts from my apartment. It is terrific except for one problem. When the items are heavy, the left rear wheel falls off. I would love advice on how to repair it or wonder if it could be replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wheels and Screws fall off I purchased this for my elderly parents a few months ago. They just recently showed me the cart and the wheel and screws that hold it upright fell off (unable to fix). They admitted that this was happening since the first week they got (1-2 short and light grocery trips). I wish I knew sooner as I would have returned immediately. I now purchased the other cart from container store and I'm cautious as to having the same issues. I hope not. I'm a fan of Container Store which is why I'm giving another shopping cart a chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, stronger, lightweight, large capacity I live in Brooklyn, NY and don't own a car (typical for NYC). This cart has been my "car trunk" for several years. I use it to go to the grocery store when I am doing a big shopping, and use it every other week to take my laundry to the laundry mat. It's the best cart I have ever had for these purposes, and I have owned many carts over the years! Also, the wheels are a modest size so when stored it takes up less room in my closet than other carts I have owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rear Wheel Came Off Within An Hour Of Purchase! What a hunk of junk! Not worth a nickel, never mind $80 bucks. I love The Container Store but its management should remove this product from all store shelves immediately. Not worth the star I'm required to post.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Torn! Why do the wheels on this not spin?! Being aluminum, it's so lightweight and wonderful. This should spin like a rolling suitcase. We've come too far for this design spec to be overlooked. If you put a large case of water in this cart and try to turn it, it's a hassle! I am torn because the only comparable cart that does have spinning wheels is steel and heavy! So I feel like I have to choose between the inconvenience of no spinning wheels or heaviness. Ugh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight & sturdy cart We recently purchased 4 of these carts to use in transporting class materials from location to location. We searched the internet pretty extensively to find a strong but light weight cart that was big enough to hold what was necessary. The wheels are big and don't wobble and the cart opens easily. So far these carts are perfect! We haven't had them long enough to vouch for their durability but they seem well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift for the Urban Shopper I ordered this as a gift for my sister, a personal chef who makes daily walks to the grocery store. She loved it. She said it was very sturdy, worked well, and was even easy to take on the bus with her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ravinia here we come! I bought this for my husband for Christmas, along with the liner, 2 soccer chairs, and the portable table from another vendor. Everything fits in well. We can usually fit in a wine cooler because it's vertical. It rolls well down the path from the car to the lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shopping cart! This cart is a life saver. I use it to transfer my mother's laundry to my house every week. There is a washable bag that fits in this cart also. It collapses and can be dragged through just about any terrain, including up and down stairs. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for urban living I'm adjusting to living in a high-rise with my car so far away, and this cart is a great help for getting several bags of groceries up to my flat or taking trash and recycling down to the dumpster. The way it folds is quite ingenious--no snags or clatter. It fits nicely behind the driver's seat in the car, and stands up in my entry way when folded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I bought this cart to take to craft shows because I am tired of carrying bags around when they get full and heavy. This cart was absolutely perfect for my needs. I also purchased the liner for it. It is the perfect size and I had no trouble at all pushing it around on the pavement or bumpy concrete. Even though it is on the expensive side, I am extremely happy with my purchase. It was worth the cost. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent choice I recently moved into a high rise unit and this product has been a great help getting groceries and other purchases from my garage to my unit. It's lightweight, even for those of us who are older, and folds to save space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly sturdy! I bought this cart 3 years ago when I moved into an apartment on the 5th floor. Fortunately the building had an elevator but it was a long distance to carry groceries, litter, cat food, etc. from the car. I have overstuffed this cart with heavy packages and it continues to roll on! Some of the front tubing is a little bent but I added a velcro strap to keep it folded up. Much sturdier than the thin wire ones. The only thing that would improve it would be rotating wheels to make it easier to turn corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cart I use this for groceries and laundry. I have to walk a block from my apartment to where I park and this has been really useful. I think it's fairly stable, but because the wheels don't swivel you could knock it over if you aren't careful. It's no worse than a normal rolling suitcase. This one is a bit larger than the steel one, but both models are very lightweight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small light BUT HUGE DESIGN FLAW READ THIS BEFORE Yes this is cute little cart. and good side is its very light and small and folding. We purchased this after comparing with larger heavy ones . TO get to the point. bad side of this cart is that Its TOO narrow in WIDTH wise and its unstable when full of grocery. Real life test is when you try to cross the street and go over the different type of pavement etc THIS CART TIPS OVER TO THE SIDE VERY EASILY AND IS VERY UNSTABLE you have to constanly careful when you pull behind you. esp when you roll down the side curve when not careful it looses balance easily and crashes!@! CART HAS TO BE WIDER or WHEELS HAS TO BE SMALLER ( NO. NOT BIGGER SMALLER wheels when compare to the size of the cart) if the wheels are too big compare to the cart it makes unstable with narrow body such as this cart. CONCLUSION is that we dumped this one looking for more stable and larger unit with WIDER and LARGER WHEEL. HUGE DESIGN FLAW!! THIS IS GOOD FOR LIGHT LOAD around the block but it really isnt worth money! its my true unbiased opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing in my trunk, besides the spare tire. I love this cart. It is very light and I use it at the nursery, farmers market and to carry floral and craft tools, equipment and designs. It takes up very little room and you can stack some things on top and below .The liner makes it a private container when necessary.

Can wheels be bought separately?

The plastic casing on one of the wheels has broken, meaning that the wheel keeps falling off. Can replacement wheels be purchased separately?
Asked by: cc60602
The Container Store does not sell replacement wheels for this item. However, if you recently purchased this product and it turned out to be defective I would exchange it at the store for another one. You can also call the Customer Service Center for The Container Store @ 1-888-CONTAIN / or use the contact us link on the home page, to ask who the manufacturer is so you can contact them about replacement wheels. Unless abused, the wheel shouldn't have broken. If you haven't done so yet, I would sign up for their POP program so you don't have to worry about saving your receipt in case something like this happens. Best wishes, the Customer Service staff are very helpful.

Does this cart include the liner or is it a separate purchase?

The product title says Aluminum shopping cart & liner but when I select the product a liner is listed as a separate purchase. If the liner is not included, the product title is misleading, so is the liner included?

Foldable with liner

If the cart has the liner, can it fold up with it or does it need to be removed beforehand?
Asked by: Snoopybleah
The liner will fold up within the cart, but the front and back of the cart will not latch together to have the cart stand independently because the liner would interfere.
