I remember when some brain trust came up with the bright idea to have the shoppers put a quarter in the Coral in order to get a shopping cart & in order to get your Quarter back you have had to return it to the coral..The Shoppers rejected that system and looked for other Supermarkets to do their shopping….it didnt work. I haven’t been to Florida in a while ,but when I was there I used to l used to like to shop at Publix Supermarkets they had a system….Your shopping cart with your groceries went to the left of the cashier & the shopper went to the right on a sort of circular cash out counter . The bagger was on your left bagged your groceries as the cashier rung them up & brought them out to your car (a good deal of the time the bagger was a retired senior citizen) No tipping allowed..if you tipped the bagger bringing it to your car ..they lost their job . .at least thats what I understood that occurred perhaps I was wrong on that but no one ever tipped.Hence no shopping carts and no more dings.
