Trolleys

Anybody know where i can pick up a nice trolley or bag on wheels for my shopping, I dont always have the car and carrying heavy bags of dog food and washing powder is a pain, id like something fashionable and colourful, cant seem to find anything thats not ' grannyish '

A bag on wheels is grannyish whatever colour you choose.

Plenty around in Zurich.

They are known as 'Trams'!

Yes, but it's LV!

But it's only $5.500 without the wheels.

Re: Trolleys

I dont like using the car for short journeys and im not on a tram route, enjoy walking to the shops, make it easier with a nice trolley, ive seen nice ones in the UK but not seen anything here thats passable and not old fashioned looking

Re: Trolleys

They sell these at Aldi for a franc. Would this be the kind of thing you're after?

You're in Switzerland now - you absolutely must by a V8 Range Rover - especially if the majority of your driving is short distances.

Re: Trolleys

Here's a friendly-looking one, second-hand, not too far from Wetzikon, for only Fr. 10
http://www.tutti.ch/thurgau/haushalt...li_9293940.htm

and here's one further away, but solid quality from Loeb (a shop in Bern), including thermoinsulation and with the advantage of large wheels:

and here's a Swiss Mountain version

Top floor of Globus has some souped-up versions that are about as non-grannyish as they probably come

Re: Trolleys

Just be careful of overloading it. My sister did her back in a couple of weeks ago.

In my local Migros, they sell them. A couple of months ago they were at half price. But they were boring coloured ones.

Re: Trolleys

I have one from Andersen that is really practical as there is an insulated section for frozen food.

I'll post a pic later.
