Mr. Fontaine, I also notice a Price Chopper cart on the right on your picture. Is Peebles a cart recycler like Big Lots, Goodwill, Marden's, and Salvation Army, or does it use it use its own carts?

No, that was the first Peebles I've been to, but it was very clean cut and seems to stick with their own theme, like a Sears almost.

Chris, why didn't you stop down here where I am? I'm only about 25 miles from Hudson! Also, I've never seen that cart before. I'm actually glad you didn't take it, because now I can photograph it next time I head up there(if no one else grabs it first).

By the way: You nay have read my past posts about different carts at the Cincinnati Big lots. Well, I saw a green cart with the same pattern as in XISMZERO's picture of the 2 carts filled with boxes (presumably not for sale). I have decided that it definitely was an Ames cart!!! :tumble:
And indeed it is. They actually have 2 there. I was able to get one, which I used, and peeled the sticker partly off. I saw A, M, and S. Wahoo!:insane::insane:

I figured you would ask me that!  Sorry the trip was very sudden:(  But I did have you in mind when we didn't take it:)

Ames carts at the Kmart store in Bangor, Maine.  Some had Kmart stickers some were Ames original!

Other Kmarts also have some Ames carts (Portsmouth NH and Waterville ME) for sure.

Here are a bunch of Ames Carts masquarading as dollar store carts in East Brunswick NJ (in the Shoprite plaza on Route 18).

This is quite a large dollar store, but not one of the chains that I know of (forgot the name at the moment).

Here's a red one unmasked at the Troy Big Lots, which was a former Ames(as well as a Bradlees before that).

Just like that kid on the news found a one in a million Blue-Eyed Cicada, while on Cape Cod this weekend I had my own one in a million find.  A rare multi-colored former Ames cart wandering the streets not too far from it's now native Ocean State Job Lot in Bourne, MA!

I wish that money were no object, because I would love to have a vintage cart from Ames, Zayre (for kicks), Wards, Hills, Gold Circle, Murphy Mart, GC Murphy and more than I can list right now.  If I had ever known that these chains would be gone, I would have kept more goodies from back in the day and had a storage unit just for my retail stuff.

Completely random Ames cart I spotted while leaving the Walgreens on Chalkstone Ave!  Seems to be a lonely stray cart, homeless on the streets of Providence.

I found  a green Ames cart at a health food store today the Ames logo was on it. I tried to get a picture but they threw me out of the store and I was not able to get it. They said that I peeled the sticker with their name off of the cart but it was off when I layed eyes on it. Those people are jerks.angry:flaming:

Looks like a Jamesway cart to me.

I see Lechmere also, but what are the yellow-and-red carts to the right of the Lechmere?

Those are Shop-Rite carts. Shop-Rite is a grocery store chain with stores in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and Connecticut.

The local NWL had Ames, Bradlees, even Hills carts. Now even they have closed.
