Walmart gets all of its carts as used refurbished units from a recycler in canada.

These carts are usually stolen and thrown down a hill, were they are later retrieved then rebranded and sold to walmart.

LMAO
Damn it Bubbles

That's crazy because I too have thought to myself in frustration that the parking lot attendants or whoever deals with the carts has to be handicapped or not giving a # about their job. Certainly we don't live in the same city or even the same state so this must actually be a thing. Wal-Mart's rules must be to keep using them without repair until they are literally inoperable. Why though? This is a small expense that most stores take for customer satisfaction and it goes a long way. I walk up to the carts at Wal-Mart pessimisticly thinking "Watch this one be another POS, maybe I should complain this time". When I shop at other stores and get a good, quiet cart I immediately think "They sure are better than cheap ass ghetto Wal-Mart". Sure, I still shop there but they don't have to play the dirty whore of the department store world just because they have the lowest prices.

Stop your bitching. When you pull a cart and it doesn't work, push it aside and grab one that does work. Some people, just have to bitch...

I think Aldi's quarter for a cart has the best cart return system and prevents them from getting damaged. I'm surprised other stores don't follow their lead. At least it forces the customer to return the cart in an orderly fashion and prevents the carts from getting damaged. A little walking exercise to return a cart never hurt anyone. Not to mention it prevents cars in the parking lot from getting damaged and eliminates the need for employees to run out in the cold, rain and snow to retrieve carts.

Don't worry they are coming out with new ones


nypost.com...




The US retail giant applied for a patent, published in August, for a smart shopping cart that can track a shopper’s heart rate, body temperature, grip and walking speed.


Bio-feeback to build a more profitable shopping experience eh. It'll be fun to see how stupid the world is when I'm old and gray.

I hate walmart's fricken shopping carts!
They either squeak, go thud thud thud or turn all by themselves.....ugh..

I dont have this issue at Kroger, meijer or aldi's so what the hell is so special about Walmarts carts?

I'm not even blaming Walmart on this one.
The only way for a cart to get a flat spot on the wheel is for some ass hat to ride the cart real fast and jam their foot on the wheel to skid.

If I ever see some moron doing this they are getting a size 12 in their ass....

Does Walmart not fix their carts as often as the other stores or are their customers just more destructive?

Ugh..... I feel a lil better now....carry on.
I

Have you seen the ones w signs saying the wheels will lock if you try to leave the premises or lot with them? Those are popping up too...Invisable electronic fencing like to keep in dogs.

Pretty funny to watch as someone's cart slams locked!

Yes.

I worked for them just after high school, and I remember them getting the service about once a year. Our local supermarket, on the other hand, did it once per quarter.

On the destructive side, WalMart carries heavier merch, and generally has a larger number of clientele who don't give a damn about the carts...add that to larger parking lots, more collisions with cars, etc.

So really, it's likely a combination of BOTH factors.
