  • I call it "trolly" and I am from Boston, Ma. However, Ive never heard anyone else call it that so I dont know where I got it from or why. Most people in my area call it a cart or shopping car.

  • a cart.

    I refer to the store as the "grocery" or the "grocers" rather than calling it a "grocery store."

  • lol-I am from the states, but I currently live in Puerto Rico and my husband is from here. I call it a cart or shopping cart and he calls it a "car" because in spanish they say "carrito de compra" which mean a car for shopping and we speak english all the time since I don't like speaking spanish with family(I was born and raised speaking only english until I was 16-17 when I moved here). He speaks english very well, but that's the only thing he says weird. And I've tried to correct him but he forgets.

  • I call it a cart, but today a person was being helpful, and asked if I wanted a buggy when I walked in with my son. I had to think for a minute, Did I want a buggy?? Oh, yeah. I did!

  • I used to call it a wagon when I was younger - I don't know why. Then when I was older someone made fun of me and now I call it a shopping cart.
