The Birth Of The Shopping Cart

This is quite interesting. The history of the shopping cart begun in 1937 where it was invented by a resident of Oklahoma City, OK, called Sylvan N. Goldman. The history goes all the way to the online shopping carts. Like the early shopping cart back in 1937, the online shopping cart had it own imperfections in the beginning. It has been an intriguing trip since the shopping cart was born.
