Cart features:

The footprint of the cart is made to fit a normal market stall and fit in a small van.
Size - folded - 1185 x 862 x 875mm
Open - 875 x 1700 x 1950mm

It has a 0.5m2 internal and lockable storage, also a cupboard with sliding doors at the back where you can store such things as a till, bags,money,card readers etc. The cart had an Integrated cable port in the bottom of the draw, that enables you to hide your cables.

The cart is fitted with a pegboard wall and includes three shelves with fittings. There are also two hanging bars, to display lighter items such as a T-shirt or tote bag.

The cart comes in three finishes - unvarnished (allowing you to customise with paint), varnished plywood, and finally varnished with formica top. Formica tops are hardwearing and waterproof, perfect for anyone with messy products! The cart can be ordered in three different colour finishes: black, white or yellow. The wheel hubs are available in either black or yellow. At the moment the cart is only available in these options, however there is ample scope for self-customisation, as the blank birch cart can be painted as you wish!  

The cart has three wheels: two Pneumatic ones, and a solid nylon castor with brake.

The wheels can carry up to 100kg. The Pneumatic wheels are made of rubber and commonly used for wheelbarrows. Rubber tyre inflates to 2bar.

How it’s made:
The new Poundshop cart is made using sustainably-sourced birch plywood. We work closely with LAB 83, a digital fabrication bureau based in South East London, using a CNC machine (this is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools) which provides consistency and accuracy, while minimising wastage and therefore reducing the material footprint of the cart, and ensuring a well-crafted unit.

Costs:
A cart with formica top is £1,900. A plain cart made of only ply is £1,850. This does not include delivery costs. Approx delivery times 3-4 weeks.
