A shopping cart escalator?! How exactly does that work?

It is SOOOO cool!! I imagine it works like those wheelchair lifts in people's homes. It looks like empty tracks. When you put your cart in there it grips the wheels and up goes your cart. The people escalator is right next to it, so you watch your stuff go up. At the top, you pull it out and off you go!
