To anyone who has ever ordered from this giant TV shopping show, this was a dream come true. We got to tour the studio where the shows are filmed, and we even got to go out on a deck and watch a show in progress. Bob Bowersox and Paul Deasy were hocking Today's Special Value. It was fascinating.
QVC is located in West Chester Pennsylvania only a short drive from Phili and from Wilmington. We were escorted through what looks like a giant doll house with a kitchen that we will all recognize, the garage, the fashion set and many more. We were also given tons of facts like they have 3000 employees, the building is the size of 17 football fields, product central has 200,000 items.
They also have a store that sells lots of stuff, jewelry, electronics, makeup, etc. Prices are the same as on air but there is no shipping. If you love QVC, the tour is a blast.It is so good that I have gone on it two or three times since the original time.
They ship out over 6 million items a year and my husband told our guide Marie that 2 million came to our house, another husband there says he can account for the other 4 million. Husbands just don't get it. The tours are done hourly from 10am til 4pm and the store is open 9:30am-6pm. There is plenty of free parking.
