Getting an overhaul

Don't be surprised if your shopping buggy moves smoother the next time you visit the Covington Kmart. The wheels on the carts are being replaced by Matthew Bailey of Virginia, who travels around the country doing similar refurbishing on Kmart buggies. He will also wash and do a general check on the carts to make sure they are in top shape. Bailey said the old wheels and parts are recycled and new wheels are made from the product. Most Kmarts have about 200 buggies.
