Ok folks, this might seem a little mundane, but it was actually totally cool. In Minneapolis, MN there is a two story Target and they have solved the problem of taking carts from floor to floor by building a special cart escalator. We’ll call it a cartalator!
So, I was really looking forward to my trip to this Target specifically so I could take some photos and video of this thing to put on the blog here, and as soon a I walked in the door the monkey in the guard outfit made me put my camera away! Told me it was Target corporate policy not to allow photography in any store.
Well, do you think that was going to stop me, dear readers? I didn’t think so.
Sure, I put my camera away. But in it’s place I whipped out my camera phone and at least shot this crappy video:
So as to have a little more to share with you, I also found a couple of other illegal cart-o-lator videos. First a cart’s eye view:
Here is one that is from Target in Gaithursburg, MD. Funny, I lived near there for 5 years and didn’t know it!
And here is one in San Diego, CA:
As well as this post with some good photos.
If anyone knows of other locations of these cartolators please share them in case folks living nearby want to stop in and take a look. They are pretty darn cool.
