A practice that is becoming very popular in stores that is uncommon in the U.S., although ubiquitous in Europe and many parts of Canada, is requiring a Coin, or a reusable coin-sized token which may be purchased from the Stores, to use a shopping trolley. When the coin or token is inserted, the trolley is unlocked from the other trolleys. When the cart is returned, the customer is refunded his or her coin, so in effect this costs the customer nothing.
However one of the major stores implementing these Trolley Coins Aldi has had a massive success rate with loss and return of shopping trolleys.
In many stores now, the customer has to pay a small deposit by inserting a coin, which is returned if and when the customer returns the cart to a designated cart parking point. The motivation behind the deposit systems is not theft deterrent since the trolley is worth significantly more than the deposit, however through this fee the retailer seeks to reduce the expense of their employees having to gather the carts that were not returned, and to avoid damages by runaway trolleys.
Although common in Europe, the deposit system has not been widely adopted in the United States, with the exception of some chains like Aldi in the UK, who require a $2.00 deposit. are now using trolley coins.
