Yeah a cool green HQ cart.  I was surprised to find these at that Building19.  And i do remember seing Caldor carts at Bradlees with a Bradlees sticker over the Caldor logo.

Here's another Caldor cart at Marden's in Portland ME.

Sounded like an "Old School" Caldor. Mine was too, built in 1979, closed in 1999.

my Caldor had black carts with the Caldor logo in white letters. Towards the end, when other stores were closing, our store recieved carts with the plain and rainbow logos. Those were brown carts.

A Caldor cart at the Colonie Salvation Army store. There are about 5 there. I only have a closeup of the logo. I can try to get better pics when I go back there again. This pic is from 2003, and I've never thought about getting more pics since then. I go there frequently, so I probably should take more pics. This cart is probably from the Crossgates Mall Caldor.

Here's another. This one is most likely from the Albany-Central Ave store.

Amazing find in your last post! That looks like a 1960s pre-rainbow  cart! I found that same latest model black Caldor cart at a National Wholesale Liquidators in East Haven, CT.

See my Facebook album for a couple more shots of it.

well, I'm not really sure of the years of this cart. That SA has about 5 of those plain logo carts, and about the same amount of newer Caldor carts. The plain logo came after the rainbow logo though, so I believe its an 80's shopping cart..not sure though. Shopping carts aren't my specialty..hehe

I believe the generation goes like this. The "rainbow" era lasted throughout the late 1970s, early 1980s and the white lettering was probably in the age before the rainbow or when they had the normal orange lettering. I know my local older Caldor stores had the rainbow design up throughout the 1980s and early 90s (actually my local stores had the rainbow-design up until closing) so I'm really not sure. Maybe the white lettering was late 1980s? I know the black carts were used as the latest ones.

I would also guess that the brown cart is from the Central Ave store - that one still had the orange letter logo for most (if not all) of it's life.  I know one (or more) of the Albany stores had the metal/yellow carts at one time also (probably this one also), but I think they were all replaced by plastic ones at some point.
