French term or phrase: Magasinier-conseil
This is the term used for a person who:
1. Provides shopping services for individuals
2. Researches and purchases for customers consumer goods of all kinds that they need for themselves or as gifts for others
3. Responds to various needs such as weekly grocery shopping for the elderly or helping people who lack the time to select gifts

I found the following terms:
sales consultant

storekeeper consultant

Can anyone help me figure out what the best term to use is? Thanks a lot!!!
