WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - The strange scene of a monster-sized grocery cart is pulling in to stores across North Carolina to promote locally grown food.
The Big Cart wraps up its first week on the road this summer by pulling into a Walmart store in Wilmington on Friday. It's a shopping cart that's 13 feet tall, 15 feet long and powered by a V-8 engine.
The Big Cart has been used since 2006 to emphasize North Carolina agricultural products, one of the state's top industries with more than $70 billion in annual sales.
This summer's promotion efforts run through mid-August and encourage Walmart shoppers to sample local food products.
