SEOUL, Aug. 30 (Korea Bizwire) — New services are taking care of ‘cumbersome tasks’ on behalf of those who want to stay indoors following the coronavirus outbreak.
Fitco introduced a service in November that comes up with various recommendations on fashion, picked by professional stylists based on the ‘Style Quiz’ questionnaire that asks customers some 40 questions to analyse their preferences and style.
Customers can receive up to five recommended garments and try them out. If they like them, they can be bought them via a mobile link, or returned or exchanged for other sizes for free.
Another new service, Open-run Godvatar, goes through all the trouble of buying popular luxury goods on behalf of the customer.
A staff member delegated by the customer lines up at a luxury shop at a pre-appointed time, and yields his/her spot to the customer once he/she arrives. The longer the staff member waits in line, the more the customer is charged.
The business was inspired by the ‘open runs’ that have become a more common sight to see as competition to buy the latest luxury goods has soared since the onset of the pandemic.
“We wait in line around six times every day. We have already processed more than 80 line-up calls in the last two weeks,” said Kim Tae-gyun, head of Open-run Godvatar.
Sugopeople, a startup, is soon to release a service that separates trash for customers. If a customer leaves trash in front of his or her home, the company will take charge of separating and throwing away the trash.
