Round Them Up With A Quarter Run away shopping carts are the norm in many supermarket parking lots. They can take up parking spaces and can cause damage to parked cars.  Rounding up these run away carts is usually a job for an employee of the supermarket.  So here comes a new supermarket chain into Delaware County, Aldi, and they have an alternative way to round up carts, make customers use a quarter to use a cart.
