There are several supermarkets to the east of London, where that would be a good trolley if the wheels go round.

Perfect for the "Night Crawlers" that go around the shops in pyjamas & nightgowns...

Ahh, yes. Reminds me of a trip to Netto in Moss Side, in my very early twenties, with a friend. The had a special offer on “Stella”.... Our enduring memory is women with bad makeup wearing slippers and nighties.

Student days were such happy days.

At least in your neck of the woods they leave it in a street ...

I reported this to the store yesterday. It was 2km from the store. Global problem.

We find ours in the nearby river. Maybe they think they float?

A quick Google (or DuckDuckGo) shows that the trolleys cost about £100 each, discount for quantity. So it is worth employing someone on a basic hourly rate to go round town harvesting the abandoned trolleys on a weekly basis.
