Shoppers will need loose change when they patronize a handful of Weis Market stores in central Pennsylvania.
The chain is testing a cart payment system similar to one used by Aldi discount grocery chain.
Weis spokesman Dennis Curtin said shoppers will need to insert a quarter into a device installed on the cart. Shoppers will get their quarters back when they return carts to one of several drop-off locations.
“It’s designed to help keep our prices low, make sure we have enough shopping carts in convenient locations, and minimize theft and damage to cars caused by loose carts,” Curtin said.
