    I'm a feeder driver so I don't know about QVC, but I recent'y read a newspaper article about tv sales (the Billy Mays, Shamwow sort of thing) is up. It's supposed to be a normal thing during recessions. I guess instead of going out or to malls people are watching too much tv.

    It'll take more than a little ole recession to stop QVC addicts.

    of course QVC may be a little up. Mos tof your residential type deliveries should be the same or up. People are running around and shopping as much, and instead they are all doing it from the computers and TVs at home.

    The QVC Queens got their income tax refunds and paid down their credit cards just so they could run them back up again! :happy-very:

    In my side business I order from a web site called 3 weeks ago I placed an order and fed ex was the only shipping option. Yesterday I ordered and was glad to see that UPS was the only option. I don't know how big they are, but chalk one up for the good guys

    I always have a lot of QVC, I haven't noticed any kind of change. Volume is always high on residential routes this time of year. I don't know if it has anything to do with Easter, extra cash from tax refunds, or just spring spending. I usually have splits pulled off me everday, I ran 160 stops instead of my usual 140.
