Torres Errand Runners have been running errands since June 11, 2019.
“For those of you who don’t know, we run this company in purpose to help those of you who need assistance and getting errands done whether it is because you have a hurt foot or because you just don’t feel like getting out,” Erica Torres said.
Owners Erica and her husband Toby Torres Jr. offer their services from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every Monday through Saturday.
In fact, Torres Errand Runners offer both local and Lubbock pick-ups and deliveries. For local services, there is a charge of $5 and for Lubbock services there is a charge of $25.
On their list of offers, the Torres’ include store runs, pharmacy drop off and pick-ups and even delivery of food from local restaurants.
Recently, they have also added alcohol and tobacco products to their ongoing list of deliverable items. However, they remind that ID’s will need to be shown before any purchase is made.
Torres also reminds that under no circumstance are rides available.
Reviews call them both “friendly” and “helpful.”
“If you are unable to go get things for yourself, Erica is a blessing,” one review read.
It helps that Erica enjoys what she does, saying she loves to help others.
“I wanted to do something to help others if they are unable to come out or just don’t want to come out,” she said when asked what the inspiration behind the start of the business was. “I also like to do it because I meet lots of great people.”
Outside of Torres Errand Runners, Erica also cleans homes, makes breakfast burritos and teaches Sunday school at the Church of God of Prophecy from 11 a.m. to noon every Sunday morning.
Additionally, Erica says that if you have run out of gas and call the Sheriff’s Office, they will refer you to their number.
“When someone has ran out of gas and they call the Sheriff’s Office, they give them our number,” she said.
Through her work and even outside of her work, it’s easy to see Erica’s true passion is helping others in need.
“I just love doing things for anyone I can help,” she said.
