J & K Deliveries open for business

DIXON – Jessica Farrar and Koss Ayivi have started a 24/7 business running errands for residents in the Sauk Valley.

J & K Deliveries, 301 E. Graham St., will deliver groceries, clean houses, pick up prescriptions, do house and pet sitting, gift shopping and laundry, and cook and deliver lunches or dinners within a 25-mile radius of Dixon, Sterling and Rock Falls, the owners say.
