Shopping for fashion can be both therapy and also time consuming. And if you haven’t got the time to shop for a holiday wardrobe, a gala outfit or a new suit, then it might be time to let the professionals offer a helping hand. Have you considered a fashion concierge service?
What is a concierge service?
If you’ve ever stayed in a hotel, you’ve probably heard of the concierge. It’s basically an employee to whom you can go for booking anything, from airport shuttles to tables at a restaurant. But nowadays, there are concierges for everything. No longer just the domain of the rich and privileged, too busy to organise their own holidays. The concierge business has developed into niche sectors to cover every base: there are errand services, home management, house sitting, personal assistance, pet care, tech support, travel, transport and even casino concierges.
That’s right, even online casino operators like Mr Green Co offer customers an enhanced service at their Club Royale, with bespoke promotions and travel experiences. It’s a kind of VIP membership unlocking even more entertainment opportunities than a usual online gaming company. Fitting really from such a distinguished gentleman, still rocking it in a green bowler.
