ABSTRACT
The article provides a brief history of the shopping cart. It was invented by businessman Sylvan Goldman in 1936 to lighten the load of shoppers at his Humpty Dumpty stores. He installed wheels on the legs of the cart, raised its seat and converted it into a platform for baskets which could be folded up to save space once the items were removed. Modern carts have bigger baskets and their nickel finish has been replaced by modern coatings with a plastic flap in the baby seat.
