Cart Rental: Two Bucks (6/100)

The shopping carts at the grocery stores require a deposit. At the everyday grocery store, you put in 20 Latvian cents, which releases the cart. Return the cart and get your 20 cents back. The snazzy German grocery chain requires a full lat, which is about two dollars. It is not clear if they had a bigger problem with cart theft than we do in the States, but people certainly don't leave carts floating around the parking lot denting up cars.
