Striped Shopping Cart is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've been using this for a year now, and I still love it! I enjoy going grocery shopping with it and have found it fits my weekly shopping well... about two large paper-grocery-bags worth of stuff. I also tie on the overflow (plastic-bagged) stuff. It's proven itself to be sturdy over time. I love the extra pockets for my wallet and umbrella too. The multicolored striped version really stands out and I actually look forward to using it for weekly chores.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I saw the great reviews on this cart, so I purchased it. It is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. I saw on reviews that it fits more than it looks so I took a chance. However, it does not fit much at all. It barely fits two full paper grocery bags. I would not recommend this unless you only need to carry minimal stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Farmer's Market This vibrantly cute cart is great for the Farmer's market. Now I don't have to balance bags, I have this wonderful, sturdy cart to pull around. It folds up in the trunk, but also fits behind my car seat when full of veggies and fruits. It has two compartments inside to neatly seperate the "goods". Pockets all over for other storage including a place for a water bottle #or my starbuck's coffee!#. The material appears to be of good quality and easy to clean, although I've only used it once and haven't gotten it dirty. I like the fact that it's water resistant. I also bought one for my niece away at college, thought she could use it for carting off laundry to the laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cart I like this shopping trolly because it's very lightweight and is easy to load and unload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Wonderful buy. Holds a decent amount for a small cart. Easy to maneuver. Lightweight which helps because carrying it up and down stairs for the NYC subways is essential if you want to get anywhere fast. Only gripes are the if you aren't careful and the cart is empty it will roll on its own at a very slight incline or wind. Also I had not realized until already purchased that that interior bag didn't cover the entire are of the striped bag, only about half of it. This bag has been a lifesaver since moving to NYC though and shortly after getting a pinched nerve from carrying so many groceries around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I get this sooner?!? I bought this cart to take with me to a trade show in Las Vegas. We picked up hundreds of brochures, etc. and it carried all of that plus our purses, water bottles, etc. The best thing - it's on wheels and it rolls great! No shoulders hurting from carrying totes on them! Wonderful product! Also, it folds small enough to pack in your luggage when you're flying, as we were.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Live Without I live in a multi-story apartment building with underground parking and use this sturdy, spacious, cheerful, shopping cart to haul everything from groceries to small furniture items! It always returns to the trunk of my car for its next back-saving use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little shopping cart It was love at first sight and I don't regret buying it. It's spacious despise it looks and the cold food department works great not to mention the extra pockets. It's just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Trolley Love it. Very sturdy and the colors are great. This is not your run-of-the-mill grocery cart! A little pricey, but after purchasing two cheaper versions, I would have saved money had I brought this one initially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from delightful and practical!! This little shopping cart is a life saver for me---so "cute" and practical for everyday use--not only for the grocery store but, I must admit, even to the laundry--sturdy, good capacity and just love the extra pockets for cell phone, umbrella , and occasional laundry detergent. One of the best purchases made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable The best part is how stable the cart is. So many others I've tried are always tipping off their wheel bases, but not this one. It rolls really smoothly. Wish the inner cooler lining had a flap-close top. Too new to know how the bottom shelf will hold up to larger loads. But really happy with it and well worth the price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trendy Shopping Cart Bought this online and picked it up today at the Costa Mesa,CA location at curbside pickup. It was supposed to be assembled but the attendant said "oh, it is so easy to do" and in reality there really is no assemply, just a lot of plastic to remove and a few velco attachments to the frame. This looks to be a quality cart, great fabric and the colorful stripes are really nice. Also nice is the hot/cold lining and pockets for keys, umbrella, water bottles, etc. It is a nice size and easy enough to maneuver through the farmer's market stalls that are sometimes narrow. The price of $49 is also really good and I've seen carts that were much higher and not as nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rolling Cart/Trolley--Whimsical and Practical Too I judge myself to be quite the expert on rolling carts since medical limitations prevent me from carrying bags while puling a trolley is not such a problem. Thus, I currently have two and never leave home without one. This Container Store cart has some features that are unique: 1. there are long open pockets on each side of the bag that are about 3/4 as high as the bag itself; 2. there is a much smaller pocket in the back (perfect for keys) and what the store refers to as an umbrella pocket (more on this later); 3. the lining is water-resistant; and 4. inside the bag there is a roomy insulated pouch to keep items hot or cold. Wow what a great design. I have never seen a cart with an insulated pouch or an umbrella pocket but since I wear a waterproof pancho in the rain, this pocket is perfect for my tall water thermos. I have had carts with one or two small pockets but never with all these pockets. This is the cart that allows you to really organize your groceries or whatever else you might be carrying. The pockets on the sides are plenty large enough for magazines, books or the latest copy of The Onion. I am 5'7" with long legs and this cart is actually tall enough. Now the bag itself--this is the whimsical part. They had me at stripes...but the vivid colors make this a stylish pleasure to use. Since I need to use a cart, it might as well be great looking. The wheels are large and overall from the frame to the bag this trolley is very well made. Regarding the size, the store's description has the measurements but based on the carts I've owned, I consider this a Med/Large; the opening is very wide making it easier to fill and empty. I also own a taller one but I wouldn't trade this one for anything--not with all these features. If you're shopping for a family of four, you might need the largest you can find but with its insulated pouch, this cart has many uses including beach or park outings. I expect to have it for a long time. If my husband wouldn't freak out, I would buy another one to have when this cart eventually wears out...I know I'll regret it if I don't. I had to wait weeks for them to become available for purchase. One final word, I have bought cheaper carts but the wheels fell off very quickly. Like that special handbag you just gotta have, this is the cart equivalent. If you need it, go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm goin' shoppin'! I absolutely LOVE this cart! It's the perfect height for me and I'm 5'4". The handle has a nice foam covering. The wheels squeak a little but I plan to oil them this weekend. It holds quite a lot of groceries and it's a very smooth ride. Best of all - it looks good when I'm out and about! The striped fabric is very Paul Smith. The pockets are very handy for stashng your shopping list and water bottle. The cart does not come assembled but I was told that someone at the store could put it together for me. I chose to do it myself but it's nice of them to offer. It's easy to assemble. No tools required. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shopping cart! I have bought this shopping cart about a year ago and have used it in many situations. It is very light weight and can carry a lot of stuff. It is really useful for a trip to the farmers market or any place you want to easily carry items around. It also looks great so you can go around in style. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful and Stylish at the same time! This shopping trolly has saved me from remembering all my bags to take into the grocery store - just one wonderful striped cart. The insulated bag is useful and divides the space in two (still learning how to pack everything properly). Side pockets can hold a bottle in each, rear pockets hold umbrella and 'other' (I'd suggest a spare bag for eggs or the like). The only addition I'd love to see (and am working out how to make it myself), is a backpack attachment, so I can hike to the store and roll back. If you're interested in getting compliments regularly, this is the bag to have. I can't leave the supermarket without at least one person commenting on how they like this cart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lifesaver! Having recently been diagnosed with a chronic pain disease, this cart is a lifesaver! Not only is it super cute, it's functional and allows me to carry everything I need. I'm in the field of recreation and often need to haul supplies with me everywhere I go. Instead of carrying heavy bins in and out of my car, this cart has several different pockets that keeps everything straight for me. The fabric part comes off as well so you can use the cart to carry larger items. Definitely would recommend to my friends - perfect for work and home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laundry cart Not only great for laundry. I am using this cart for work. I travel between 3 schools. It's waterproof and it has a section that's insulated for my lunch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mom loves it! Bought for her to carry groceries home and get them to her apartment. And no assembly required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for City Living This is an excellent cart when you have to rely on public transportation to do your shopping. It's light and easy to maneuver, yet sturdy enough for a lot of groceries - plus the extra pockets for an umbrella and other things mean less items to juggle with your hands. Besides, it's much more attractive than those wire crate looking things out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Useful Product I purchased this stripped shopping cart for my daughter who is away at college. She loves it because she can not carry all of her groceries in her arms when she walks to the city for snacks, water, and toiletries. She also likes the colors on the cart. She said that she likes the insulated pockets on the outside for carrying water. It folds nicely so she can store it under her bed. This is an excellent price and well constructed product for a young girl at college who shops in the city. All of the other girls in her dorm are jealous and want to borrow it!

Can it climb stairs easily?

I live in a 3 story townhome.
Asked by: JudyQHouston
None of our carts are particularly designed for repetitive use on stairs. However, the best cart best equipped to handle stairs is the Go Up Swivel Shopping Cart Black (item # 10056500).

Does the liner has to be removed in order to fold the cart? And does the liner go flat as well? What are the liner's dimensions?

Asked by: Tere
The liner does not have to be removed in order to fold the cart. The liner does go flat and it measures 14-1/8” x 11-7/8” x 37-1/2”h.

How do you fold this flat?

I purchased this cart and unpacked it in a hurry, not paying attention to how you fold up the bottom section- I don't want to force anything and there were no directions re: folding back to flat as it was packaged! Thanks
Asked by: CDBNYC
To refold your Striped Shopping Cart, fold the bag flat against the frame and fold up the bag support at the bottom of the frame. Now, fold the frame handle backwards and fold the top part of the bag over it to give the cart the smallest possible silhouette while being stored. For further assistance, please contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246).

once full, does the bag move around or slip from side to side??

Asked by: marymill
The reports from the owners of our Striped Shopping Cart praise it for being a well-balanced, sturdy, stable, spacious, cheerful shopping cart to haul everything from groceries to a load or two of laundry. They have not reported any slipping or sliding of the bag, either while in transit or stationary.
