What You'll Get
Get your life in order by getting someone else to do it for you. With today’s Groupon, $25 gets you two hours of errand-zapping personal assistance or corporate concierge service from Best Friend Errand Service ($50 value). Weaned on late-night phone conversations and games of catch, this West Chester–based startup was selected as Cincinnati’s Best Shopping Service by Cincinnati Magazine in 2006.
Best Friend Errand Service is a company with a simple concept: it connects time-crunched people and businesses with people willing to do their bidding. With only 24 hours' notice, which is the exact amount of time it takes to fly over in the company hot air balloon, your new best friend will arrive ready to do handy deeds. Picking up or dropping off meals, movie rentals, or prescriptions is executed swiftly, while moving assistance (packing, unpacking) is carried out with briskness. Best Friend can also do your shopping, water your plants, wait for the cable guy, or fill up water balloons in preparation of ambushing your next-door neighbor’s tree house. Additionally, Best Friend Errand Service offers professional concierge services for your workplace and can help organize events for out-of-town companies.
More reliable than real friends and less expensive than a butler, Best Friend Errand Service also won’t borrow your tools. With many years of experience working for a Fortune 500 company and several small businesses, Best Friend’s owner Sue Glew knows the value of having an extra hour and will allow you to savor productivity devoid of stress-inducing additives. It's the perfect way to free up time if you're busy managing a family of owls or recovering from an illness or surgery.
