Errands, personal/office assistance, concierge services... is this a marketable service for today`s commuter who spends 3 hours of the day travelling to and from work? What kind of services do you think commuters would be willing to pay a concierge business to do? I have picked out just a few to offer like: dry cleaning, runs to grocery stores, the mall, returns/exchanges, post office, dinner pickups. When the commuter finally return to the bus depot at night he/she picks up their dry cleaning, dinners, purchases and goes straight home without making any stops.
I am interested in feedback of what types of services would be valuable to commuters or non-commuters alike. With 50% of the population living alone today, people are running errands either on work time, at lunch time or on the weekends plus doing household chores. Then there`s the single parents who have even less time for themselves.I have to give a presentation to the Bus Authority`s Board of Directors soon and I would appreciate feed back on what you think should be included in this presentation. Any services that you can think of that you would be willing to hire a concierge to do and how much you would be willing to pay? Also opinions on client retainer accounts for purchases and pre-paid blocks of concierge time that comes discounted? Is that something you would be interested in? Appreciate all comments given,
