From the classic metal model to the modern plastic Salsa shopping trolley
Not all shopping trolleys are alike. Wanzl has proved this with its extensive range of products to suit any need. Wanzl creates items to suit each specific store – whether it is the small 75-litre model for a small corner shop or the 240-litre shopping assistant for the hypermarket. However, Wanzl also bears in mind the individual requirements of the customer: the “Trend” model with baby seat allows for child-friendly shopping, with a bag hook and cup holder to keep your hands free, while an integrated magnifying glass helps make important information legible as you shop. Last year, Wanzl launched a new generation of plastic shopping trolleys with the 150-litre Salsa model. The roll-out of the model marks a fresh new departure in terms of design, appearance and smooth motion. The strikingly innovative concept is also visually appealing. Product designer Thomas Gasche explains: “We drew inspiration from organically developed shapes in nature. The sides of the Salsa, the first trolley in the new product family, resemble a nest structure. Thanks to the plastic material used to make the trolleys, we are able to produce exciting shapes for a unique shopping experience.”The 95-litre variant will be available from July 2017.
Shopping trolley 2.0: the next 80 years of shopping with Wanzl
Smart shopping is also becoming a reality thanks to Wanzl. “While Wanzl is driving change in the retail sector every day through digitization, we are also making Shopping 2.0 possible with our smart trolley. The intelligent shopping trolley is equipped with an RFID tag and provides store managers with important information for customer-oriented optimisation,” says Dr Meier-Kortwig, Chairman of the Management Board, emphasising that “Wanzl is ready for the next 80 years of shopping in the future.”
