U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for Feb. 21.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21: MISSING SHOPPING CARTS

Profile America -- Wednesday, February 21st. We've all seen them and wondered how they got there -- a supermarket shopping cart, sitting forlornly along a residential street, far from the nearest grocery store. Was it a prank, or someone who walked to the store and bought more than they could carry? Either way, this is Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month -- including milk crates and bread trays. The idea is for consumers to avoid the increased food prices that result when store owners have to replace stolen equipment. And supermarkets play a big role in everyday life. There are more than 6,600 supermarkets across the nation, selling $395 billion of groceries each year.
