Williamsport native builds motorized shopping cart


(WBRE/WYOU) — Here’s something you don’t see every day: a giant, motorized grocery shopping cart strolling down the street.

Williamsport native and Lancaster resident Cal Vansant build what’s called the Shopper Chopper with his son-in-law and travels the country with it. The chopper is 10 feet tall, 13 feet long and holds 165 bags of groceries.

It’s made out of three different vehicles, a Ford Crown Victoria, a Chevy Caprice and a Dodge van. This week a grocery store chain hired Vansant to promote a new store in Des Moines, Iowa.
