ST. GEORGE — Recognizing the need for an errand service, two grandmas from St. George, Korrie Ford and Linda Simmons, took their love for their community and passion for helping others and decided to start Grandma Go-Go Errand Service.
In a press release from Grandma Go-Go founders, they said they had discussed the idea many times.
“With the holidays quickly approaching, we decided that no time is better than the present,” the statement said.
Whatever the situation or challenges someone might face, Grandma Go-Go Errand Service has the solutions you need, according to the company’s website. Their job is to make your day just a little bit easier. They accomplish this by providing a wide range of reliable and highly professional services.
The flexibility of Grandma Go-Go Errand Service helps account for many different situations, founders said. Whether it is grocery shopping, DMV renewals, prescription pickup, office supplies, post office trips or even taking forgotten homework to school, they said they are willing and ready to help you. They can even help you set up for that surprise party you have put off getting ready for.
Chausse Sylvester, who lives in Oregon but has a daughter attending Dixie State, said Grandma Go-Go helped her surprise her daughter with groceries and “survival packages.”
“It is much cheaper than shipping,” Sylvester said, “and I don’t have to take time from my busy day. I just give them a call and it’s done to perfection!”
The founders said their backgrounds – Ford’s in property management and Simmons’ in banking – and their combined professional experience as mothers, grandmothers and homemakers give them a world of experience in serving others and making everyone’s life just that much easier.
The best part is that Grandma Go-Go can help “lift your burden, without crunching your budget.”
“With the holidays quickly approaching we see ourselves gift shopping, wrapping, delivering and shipping,” the founders said in their release. “We plan on helping our neighbors with whatever is needed. We want to be our client’s extra set of hands.”
Ford and Simmons said they provide a service which could be a perfect fit for professionals, property owners, new or expectant parents, on-the-go retirees and seniors, parents, recovering patients, tourists or small business owners.
The initial fee for Grandma Go-Go Errand Service is $25 per hour, in which customers can expect 2-5 errands completed.
Package deals can be arranged for those who will require regular service.
