Stress in big cities is a common factor on people who go from here to there, working all the day, even week-ends when they must do extra hours. So, it is difficult even to have a little of free time for shopping, because when you get home you are tired and don’t want to waste your time queuing on shops full of stressed people.
So, the situation is that nowadays there are a lot of people who have found a way to work as a personal shopper. They are people who dedicate their time working as your personal assistant on buying for you. You can hire them as for going to shop clothes, or food, or technology. When you meet them on appointment they bring you what they have bought for you.
It is a difficult occupation, where you must have a lot of empathy and take very careful all the indications that your customer gives you. Colors, smell, taste… you must put all the senses on what you are buying, because a mistake on, for example, buying horrible diamonds socks, can sack you from the job.
