I'm a Kids "R" Us kid!

I remember a real long time ago when I little, I saw a built on calculator on a shopping cart at Wegmans. Maybe I was seeing things, but it was real.

Has anyone seen a built on calculator on a shopping cart?

I've never seen one, but it sounds like a good thing to have. I usually bring a calculator to calculate costs.

They had those on the shopping carts of some Piggly Wiggly locations in my area.

Some Kroger stores had those in the early '90s. The local Hancock Fabrics used to have a couple of the carts (with the calculators intact) floating around the rear stockroom - never got pictures, sadly.

I remember when I was a little kid in the late 80s/early 90s Shoprite on Farmington Ave in Bristol, CT had shopping carts with calculators on them. I don't remember which family owned the store at that time.

Kroger had them and even a few Kmarts did at one time  I know i saw them at differnt stores  The only problem was when they got wet or cold they tended to stop working  and  even were stolen off them sometimes .
