You may remember last week's rant about people who don't return shopping carts to the cart return. Well, the Shop-Rite in Bayville, New Jersey knows how to deal with those deadbeats. If you want one of their shopping carts, you put a quarter in a little gizmo on the handle, which releases a chain that holds it to the next cart in line. You take your cart and do your shopping, and when you properly return the cart to the stand and replace the chain, your quarter pops back out. I shopped there yesterday, and there was not a stray cart in the lot. A quarter may not buy much these days, but apparently it's enough of a reward for people to return their carts. And you may notice the ominous words at the top of the sign, "Surveillance cameras in use". They aren't kidding around. Bravo, Bayville Shop-Rite.
