Shop At Home Closes

Shop at Home is closing its doors, putting some 400 660 (according to the City Paper) Nashvillians out of work.

In previous statements, company officials had cited difficulty reaching the homes of Americans for the fourth-ranked home shopping television network, which goes up against top-ranked QVC and other home shopping television outlets. The company also said the path to profitability was taking longer than expected.

Who killed Shop at Home? QVC? or the Internet? My bet is on the latter.

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. My wife worked for them as a telecommuter for about 6 months. She never could get her supervisor to respond to email or phone calls. What was really insane was after she quit… they called two months later asking her why she hadn’t been working her shifts!

    I feel for anyone who is losing their job but Shop At Home had some long standing management problems that went beyond simple fixes.
