On the go, running (other people's) errands

. March 29, 2013.

Short on time? Short on patience? Let Karen Wisner take care of that pesky errand for you.

Wisner, owner of the new Karen’s Errands in Findlay, has been grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions and doing other duties since November. She first got the idea from caring for her elderly mother, realizing that her mother and others like her sometimes needed help with life’s mundane tasks. Many people in Findlay are either home bound, on bed rest, without transportation or too busy to get to the store, Wisner says.

“Not all people have families who can drop everything and help,” she said.

Wisner’s services include grocery and event shopping, post office runs, library book returns, prescription pickups and recycling drop-offs. She is also available to pick up mail during vacations, wait for service calls and re-stock the house for snowbirds before they return home. Some errands have a set fee, others are charged by the hour. She does not provide transportation for people or pets but runs the errands for clients in Findlay and Hancock County.
