Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 25, 2017, 10:47:42 pmYeah well, not every taxi rank/bus interchange (esp Tuggeranong) has a trolley return with a chain plug-in thing, nor other trolleys around to get the coins back.

Quote from: Sir Pompously on February 26, 2017, 10:42:15 amI too have used online shopping before, it is a great service and was very easy to use with a minimal delivery fee.As for the trolley deposit, sadly the Government has had to implement this system as there were too many rouge trolleys around the place. Supermarket trolley contractors were not collecting them when reported and customers were doing the wrong thing by taking them outside the area of the shopping centre, so they have brought back the old system of a coin deposit (or token if you have one). If there is not one in the area you need then contact the particular supermarket chain you shop at or centre management and let them know. Often places outside the carpark are overlooked so they just need someone to push and remind them that trolley return bays exist at taxi ranks and bus stops/interchanges.

Quote from: ajw373Think it was 20c back then.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 26, 2017, 04:10:18 pmWe do already have a trolley, but mum and I only use it for emergencies for when we're carrying something big, or if she's shopping by herself. Otherwise I use my old shopping method of carrying 2-4 shopping bags on my bikes handle bars - probably a shopping method I should go back to
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 27, 2017, 01:14:21 amThat makes sense in some ways, but also makes the point of the locks even more stupid. The fact that you can chain trolleys to other shops would make it even more hell for the returners, and preventing it on others means you can't get you money back without having to find a match somewhere else.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on February 27, 2017, 07:09:25 amIs Mawson Woolies not an option?Also, proximity trolley locks already exist. Not sure if any stores in Canberra use it though. I've seen it at a Coles in Melbourne.
Quote from: ajw373 on March 06, 2017, 03:01:38 pm....and the plaza had metal mats made out of material like escelator/travelator tread, about 1.5m long that stopped/made it very hard to take trolleys beyond the boundary.
Quote from: Stan butler on March 06, 2017, 07:29:18 pmwhat happens if they malfunction or if there is a blackout. How do you move you trolleys to the other floors or to the car park as you cannot push them on the travelator?
Quote from: Busnerd on July 29, 2019, 04:09:20 pmThat has been common knowledge for weeks now in social circles and as reported by many locals and local media outlets, I'm sure those on here have the means and knowledge to find an alternate supermarket nearby.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on July 29, 2019, 09:10:47 pmIt was only made apparent to myself this afternoon by an APS4 employee from another section in my department who lives in Coombs; all of my social circles are on the north side, predominantly in the Gungahlin district, this therefore means that I am not current with south side happenings.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on July 30, 2019, 12:41:46 amI don't even watch/read the news anymore, wouldn't even know (or care tbh) if the IGA and Dominoes near me had closed down. My mum is my source of news now days

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 22, 2020, 10:34:13 pmSo other than riding buses, this pretty much means I have no reason to ever visit Belconnen for anything ever again except for picking up another coloured suit.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 22, 2020, 10:34:13 pmCan't believe Belconnen Mall's Woolworths still has an old logo above the front entrance, amazing no one has bothered to replace it with the garbage they have now. Also Toys R Us has apparently been gone for a year now or something. This mean no more bus toys from one of the few 'real' stores left in Canberra... Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!
