Personal shopping carts - where to buy & how to use

Question

Can someone please tell me the convention for taking a personal shopping cart into stores? I have an expensive wheeled cooler that is more like luggage. I don't want to leave by the door. I'm thinking of getting one like everyone else's even though only here for 6 months.
a) Can I take mine into the store? It fits under most supermarket trolleys.
b) If I leave it at the door, how do I get my groceries into it?
What type of store should I look for a local one? I have seen hugely expensive ones in the centre, but the ones in supermarkets look cheaply made. How much should I pay and what should I look for?
c) What do you do if you already have shopping in yours? Do they ever get stolen?
d) Any other tips?

I've never left my shopping cart (cheap, from Ikea) at the door; I think you're fine to bring it with you in any store.
