The shopping cart was invented by Sylvan Goldman in 1937. He was from Oklahoma City where he used the shopping carts in the Standard Food Markets and Humpty Dumpty Supermarkets. He created the first shopping cart by using a folding chair to which he attached the wheels. Each cart had room for two shopping baskets. Carts can be folded when not in use and baskets stacked on the floor. It was patented on 15th March, 1938. There is a statue of Goldman pushing a shopping cart in the Omniplex science museum in Oklahoma City.
