Wow! What a find - I knew there were rainbow Caldor carts out there. Let me tell you if I saw that, it would be sticking out of my trunk in the next few minutes. Here's a typical one I found behind the Shaw's near a former Caldor (turned Ames) in Stoneham, Mass.

Still a shocking find seeing as Caldor shut down in 1999. One wonders exactly where this cart has been lurking (surviving) around since then.

Here is a newer shot of the older Caldor cart at the Colonie Salvation Army. There are others there, but this was the only one I could get a shot of.

Shot of the newer cart there. Like the older carts, there are more, but I could only get a shot of one.

1990's Caldor cart sighting at Building 19 1/15 (?) in Nashua, NH. They were caught using all kinds of strange unknown carts and baskets. None of them were as easily recognizable as this one...

Today when I was in Dollar Tree in Newington CT, I happened to peek in the back room that was open, and I noticed a Caldor cart identical to the one pictured above this post. It must have been from the Newington store. It's being used by Dollar Tree for storage.

Saturday night walking by the Salvation Army store on Farmington Ave in Bristol, Connecticut (in the plaza with Sears Appliance & Hardware previously Wollco, Rickles, and Pergament in that order and Big Lots previously Waldbaums) I saw a Caldor Cart (logo in tact) in the window with the rest of the Salvation Army Carts.

About 2 weeks ago I saw a homeless guy walking through Shoprite Plaza in Southington, CT and he was pushing a brown Caldor cart filled with his belongings.

I was at Bristol Plaza last week in Bristol, CT (The plaza with Stop & Shop, TJ MAXX, Savers, and JOB LOT) and I saw an older man pushing a brown Caldor Cart. Man it's been 16 years since they went out.
