How to Assemble a Folding Grocery Cart

Meg North

The folding grocery cart comes in either a two-wheeled or four-wheeled model for carrying large loads of groceries and other supplies. The total weight carrying capacity varies from 100 pounds to 150 pounds, depending on the model. Different folding grocery cart models are made of canvas, water resistant materials, metal or wire mesh. Some grocery carts are pre-assembled before shipping, but other models require light assembly. No special tools are required.

As opposed to traditional grocery store carts, folding grocery carts carry smaller loads and are lighter in weight.
