Shopping Cart Gift Box

Shopping Cart Gift Box For Wife's Birthday Did you know that…

One night, in 1936, Sylvan Goldman, the owner of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain in Oklahoma City, sat in his office wondering how customers might move more groceries. 

He found a wooden folding chair and put a basket on the seat and wheels on the legs. Goldman and one of his employees, Fred Young, a mechanic, began tinkering.

Their first shopping cart was a metal frame that held two wire baskets. Since they were inspired by the folding chair, Goldman called his carts “folding basket carriers”.

The invention did not catch on immediately. Men found them effeminate; women found them suggestive of a baby carriage. “I’ve pushed my last baby buggy,” an offended woman informed Goldman.

After hiring several male and female models to push his new invention around his store and demonstrate their utility, as well as greeters to explain their use, shopping carts became extremely popular and Goldman became a multimillionaire.

Today, most big-box stores and supermarkets have shopping carts for the convenience of the shoppers.

A homemade Shopping Cart Gift Box is a cool and practical gift idea for any gift-giving occasions.
