They told us almost a year ago that we would be getting new ones, but the ETA keeps getting pushed back. Apparently there was some defects that needed to be addressed. Last I heard, we'll get them at my store some time between now and the end of February.
Am I the only one feeling a little sad about losing the plastic carts? They were so quiet and just glided across the floor! I feel like the new carts were stolen from that place ending in mart and beginning with a W, and just painted red.
Just a little inside info. Your store should have “X” amount of carts. If you drop below a certain % out of 100% of your store’s carts (theft, unfixable damage) then the store will be sent replacements or the new model.
How does Spot find out this information you may be wondering? Your PMT does an annual audit in October/November and literally walks around counting them. Spot tacs an extra couple % on there because unless you do your count overnight, you’ll never find all of them.
Had your PMT known of this rating system then they might -accidentally- over look some in the parking lot or something.
I didn’t know there was a nation wide roll out of this model so my count was pretty good so I’m enjoying rebuilding plastic ones every week until who knows when...
Those look like the old-old ones. We just got new plastic/metal ones and the metal is gray, not chrome...they're SUPER quiet and smooth. They feel a lot nicer than the all-plastic carts (our store skipped those entirely).
