Salem council targets abandoned carts


Crosby said shopping carts cost roughly $100 each. Crosby’s has markets on Canal Street in Salem, as well as in Hamilton, Georgetown, Marblehead, Manchester and Concord.

“I’m not in favor of you getting fined at all,” Councilor Michael Sosnowski said to Crosby. “I think we’re looking at the wrong person here (to punish).”

Ryan, the council president, proposed the ordinance last year after receiving complaints about shopping carts abandoned in his ward, which is near the Stop & Shop supermarket on the Peabody/Salem border.
