Carts Astray

Loose carts from grocery stores. They aren’t a public safety issue or a health issue. They’re just an eyesore.

Dear Pasadena PIO: What’s the number to call for loose shopping carts?  UPDATE: The number is 626-744-8227.

Here are a few I saw in my neighborhood recently (all on the same day). This one is from Farm Fresh Ranch Market.

Vintage Vons.

This one’s from used-to-be-Farm-Fresh-now King Ranch Market.

Ben over at The Sky is Big in Pasadena has a photo of the distinctive 99 cent store cart, along with a good idea.
