shopping cart


Explanation:
In the US, we call it "shopping cart."

Here are a few citations:

http://www.aloha.net/~dyc/shopper.html

“Few sounds are as satisfying as the thump, thump, thump of a shopping cart's wheels rolling across a tile floor, the tone deepening as the cart fills up and becomes heavier.”


http://www.aloha.net/~dyc/shopper.html

“Next time you find yourself behind a shopping cart, take a look. You'll find that there's plenty of scientific know-how on your supermarket shelves!”


http://www.halfbakery.com/idea/Shopping_20Cart_20Etiquette_2...

“Every shopping cart is equipped with some sort of alarm (along the lines of a car's 'you left your lights on' alarm.) Every aisle in the supermarket has one shelf (at cart level) with some sort of 'contact' strip running the length of it.”


I hope this is sufficient.
