I couldn’t resist the opportunity to wish us all a happy 25th birthday!
Whether you have been with us from the start or have just started shopping with us, I do hope you join in the celebrations and enjoy all the interest-free instalment offers on the QVC website.
Having joined QVC three months after the launch date, I can’t believe I’ve been on your screens almost all of those 25 years – it doesn’t seem possible that I’ve gotten this old!
I’d love to hear some of your stories and how long you have been watching and shopping with us, and what your favourite moments have been.
I am constantly being asked about my favourite all-time product, and I can honestly say it still hasn’t changed.
For me, it has to be the It Works Water-Activated Cleaning Blocks. I have used them for years on every surface imaginable, and not a week goes by without me using one somewhere in the home – plus, they are activated purely by water. Wax marks, scuff marks, finger prints, cup marks on a wooden table, pen marks and the list goes on, they have saved me on several occasions and are currently available in a great 20-piece kit.
As for my favourite memories there have been so many. I loved it when the crew and I dressed up as the ‘Village People’ and used one of our beloved karaoke machines to blast out our version of YMCA. I also loved it when we cut our record in the recording studio with the fabulous Mungo Jerry, plus how could I forget the QVC cameras at my wedding and the whole wedding series that prevailed, it was the longest wedding in history!
What has been most rewarding is seeing our business grow tremendously.
I can remember in the early days we would be working so hard to get the big brand names to work with us and give us a try. Nowadays we just don’t have enough airtime to go around and it’s the big brands that are constantly knocking on our door with tailor-made offers, added extras, extraordinary deals and worldwide launches, everybody who is anybody wants to be seen on QVC.
More importantly though, throughout all of sales that take place, I’m very proud of the fact that we offer a huge service to our viewers regarding the incredible amount of information we are able to deliver on each and every product, which helps so much when you are deciding to part with your hard-earned cash.
It means that you can really make an informed decision, which rarely happens these days on the high street as product knowledge always seems to be so thin on the ground, and of course we are always backed by our famous 30 day money back guarantee.
Secondly, despite becoming a huge force to be reckoned with in the world of retail, I’m glad we have never lost our sense of community. We care so much about our customers and apart from anything, hope that you enjoy our company in your home each and every hour and that together we can discover some exciting new things, sometimes practical, sometimes fashionable and sometimes just a treat for ourselves and have some fun added into the bargain too.
Now, one thing you might want to treat yourself to are a stunning new pair of boots.
Clarks will be featuring a fantastic Today’s Special Value offer on Monday 8th October, so definitely stick that date in your diary. The Daina Rae design is a very glamorous knee-high boot, offered in four luxurious suede colours – Black, Charcoal, Navy and Aubergine – as well as a sumptuous supple Black Leather.
The boot has been designed just for QVC and the price is incredible value for money, plus it’s a boot that’s built to last with all the expertise you would expert from such an iconic footwear brand.
In the meantime, enjoy all the birthday mayhem, thanks for watching and here’s to the next 25 years, let hope you don’t give us the boot!
