Argos Deluxe Shopping Trolley
Advantages: Price, looks
Disadvantages: Not an off roader!
A shopping trolley might be something that you associate with old ladies but they are very useful, though admittedly, I did buy one for an 'older lady', my mum who is in her late 60s. She does not drive and buys most of her day to say shopping fairly locally so she needed a trolley that she could take into the village and into town on the bus.
After having a look around at what was available we plumped for the Argos Deluxe Shopping Trolley at £45 in the sale, thinking that it wasn't too bad a price, and if there were ever any issues with it we could take it to a local Argos, not something you can easily do if you buy online.
The trolley is quite nice looking really, a steel frame with rubber wheels, and has plain navy sides and a tartan style navy and green check to the front and 'lid' of the trolley, which is styled in a square design. The 'bag' is removable and cleanable which is a bonus, overall I think it looks quite neat and not too old fashioned.
Use wise, it's very versatile. The handle is adjustable which is good because my mum is quite small, and the wheels are well made and with them being of rubber it gives a bit of shock absorption which is good on tarmac and rougher shingle or stones. They also do well on grass but not so well on mud as they don't have any tread / traction, so not good for people who like to go to car boots! It cleans down well, and is waterproof which is essential for our British Summers, and is fairly lightweight so not too difficult to get on and off the bus (though I wouldn't like to try when it's full of potatoes and tinned foods!)
Overall I think the Argos Deluxe Shopping Trolley is a nice looking trolley which is well made and won't break the bank. It is available in all Argos stores subject to local stock availability and online at Argos.co.uk for a small P&P fee. Certainly it's made shopping that bit easier for mum as she can now pick up heavier items like cooking oil, potatoes and tins and so on herself and not have to rely on one of us to give her a lift to the supermarket all the time, she likes to be independent! I'm very pleased with it and recommend it. I'll give it 5/5, for the money it's a top little shopper which is very very useful indeed.
