RunMyErrand.com is cool beans
As busy parents of three, we need all the help we can get. It seems like there are never enough hours in the day to hit everything on the to-do list. An extra pair of hands can go a long way, but most of the time, we’re opting for babysitting so we can get all the other errands done. Imagine if we could get someone else to do the errands so we could spend a little more time with the kids? Now it’s an option.
We are very excited to be partnering with RunMyErrand.com during the upcoming holiday season as part of our mission of making life easier for parents. RunMyErrand.com is a new Boston-based service that allows people to go online, create an errand and set a price they’re willing to pay. The errand is broadcasted to a wide network of prescreened, reliable runners who can opt to grab the assignment and get it done. It’s a very simple system, but it works.
Our Brookline store will have a dedicated runner from now until Christmas, enabling us to offer our customers in Brookline same-day in-home delivery for as little as $10. Customers in surrounding towns will pay as little as $15. There are details, fine print and some restrictions, but for the most part, this is incredible convenience at an amazing price. Call or come into the store for details, or you can even just go onto RunMyErrand.com and take a look for yourself. Beyond getting toys delivered, they have a helpful list of errand ideas to inspire you. Get your first errand free (up to a $15 value) by entering promo code HOLIDAYHELP.
Best of all, for every errand run this holiday season, RunMyErrand will donate a toy to Room to Grow. Awesome.
