The main reason for charging to park in the uk is for people leaving their cars and sharing one to work or getting the train and blocking the car parks up all day ,so proper shopper's can't get a parking place,as for putting a pound in the trolley ,its just to stop the kids pushing them in the canal or scum bags pushing them home with there shopping in ,if you've got to put a pound in every trolley you steal the kids soon get board ,although our asda has wheel clamp's that lock on if you go off the car park.

Our local Woolworths has started with the trolley-charging thing and recently Coles has followed suit on some of theirs - I'm guessing they will introduce them to all of their trolleys in time, which sucks.
As for the parking thing, at the moment I am sure I won't go to Marion once the scheme has started but I have a sneaky feeling that once the drama has cooled down, I will be back. I imagine most people will be because the reality is, it is the closest shopping centre for a lot of people. We just don't like change or being insulted by having to pay to go buy stuff!
I don't know how the charge for parking will take into consideration people dropping off, then collecting kids from work, cinema etc? Will that quick in-and-out count against your 2 in 24 hours? If you drive in but then cannot find a park, will you still have to pay?
I heard that his scheme will gradually be rolled out to other sites. Paying for a park at the hospitals, paying for trolleys...where will it all end lol!?
LOL our local Coles used to have the trolley charging thing, but they got rid of it.......

I think they should have the trolley charge as the carparks are littered with trolleys that lazy b*****ds cant be bothered to take back.

Yeh our local Coles got rid of the charging thing too - although Dernancourt still has it on the smaller trollies for some reason.
On another note though, I've been at Burnside shopping centre today - if you haven't been, definitely worth a visit - brilliant place, so clean, lovely clothes shops (if you like that sort of thing!) great specialist food shops and a Coles - oh and free parking!
