The usual pile of shopping carts was collecting on Ivy Tech Drive this morning. Residents of Windridge and Presidential apartments will often borrow a card for the 1/2 mile walk home – then fail to return one on the following trip.
What makes this worse for Madison, the carts are usually turns over or scattered. Not a fun cleanup job.
We talked with a manager at Kroger about the situation. He said they have to fetch the carts a few times each week. The situation is not uncommon and he says most retail store deal with it. It’s just part of the grocery business.
On bright side to this story. The Walmart workers often will bring the Kroger carts along for the ride and leave them next to the parking lot. “We have some good neighbors,” was his take on the helping hand.
