Qurate Retail Group Celebrates Military Appreciation Month
May 19, 2022: In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Qurate Retail Group is using its production resources, television broadcasts and digital platforms to support veteran-owned businesses and is hosting events for team members to recognize and honor the contributions of U.S. service members. Here’s a closer look at this month’s activities:
- Small Business Spotlight: More than a dozen veteran-owned businesses – spanning beauty, fashion, home décor, kitchen/culinary, and electronics – have been selected to participate during May in Qurate Retail Group’s Small Business Spotlight, which supports entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups with national on-air and digital exposure, along with various other pro-bono, in-kind services. Five businesses will share their brand stories on-air on QVC and HSN at various times throughout the month, while an additional 10 businesses will appear on QVC2 in a one-hour special at 3 p.m. ET on May 27. In addition, qualifying businesses have the opportunity to be featured in a dedicated, month-long event on Zulily. Learn more about this month’s participating businesses on com and HSN.com.
- Qurate Retail Group offers small businesses unmatched opportunities for growth and exposure. The company is the largest player in vCommerce, which includes video-driven shopping across linear TV, ecommerce sites, digital streaming and social platforms. In the U.S. alone, the company’s vCommerce brands, QVC and HSN, reach a combined total of 92 million homes via five television networks and reach millions more via multiple streaming services, social pages, mobile apps and websites. In the online retail space, Zulily serves 4.6 million customers a year.
- Team Member Event: Vets@QRG, Qurate Retail Group’s veterans team member resource group (TMRG) is offering an internal event to honor service members and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and their families: A Conversation with Major Brock McNabb, United States Air Force, about the impact of PTSD. Our veterans TMRG is also highlighting opportunities for team members to show their appreciation throughout the month.
- A Moment of Silence on QVC and HSN: Our five U.S. broadcast channels – QVC, QVC2, QVC3, HSN, HSN2 – and our linear streaming channel – In the Kitchen – will observe a moment of silence at 3 p.m. ET on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30.
