This cart was better than anticipated. We just moved out daughter to Chicago from the SouthWest and knew that grocery store shopping would not be as easy as just hopping in your car, loading it up and driving home when done. She does not have a car in the city. The store is about 3 blocks from her apartment. We did "major" grocery shopping and were able to fit every single bag in the cart with no problem. The weight of all of the items including a gallon of milk, a 12 pack of gatorade and large laundry detergent, were no problem at all. All in all, there were 10 bags of groceries! We would recommend this cart.
