Hello, CONTACT NAME.

I’m YOUR NAME, owner of BUSINESS NAME, a local personal shopping business that offers grocery shopping & delivery services. In the wake of the current pandemic, grocery delivery is more essential than ever. Due to the dramatically increasing need, big name grocery delivery companies are bogged down and backed up days, and in some cases, even a week. 

I’m reaching out to share with our community that my services are not only available, but still able to offer same or next day delivery services. Additionally, I am able to shop at multiple stores, to fulfill orders to the best of my ability, as many stores are experiencing shortages on some key items. Ultimately, I’m able to shop for community members, just as they would for themselves, without the restrictions of a big name grocery delivery service.

Our local economy is in need of support now more than ever, so I implore you to help spread the word about my business as a local, grocery delivery option for the people in our community.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any additional questions! Please connect with me via the Dumpling app, here (hyperlink your weblink)

Thank you, 

YOUR NAME
