QVC hits the Mall with flagship store
The Mall of America, in Bloomington, MN, has announced that QVC @ The Mall, a subsidiary of QVC, plans to open a 2,500-square-foot flagship store with broadcasting capabilities. QVC @ The Mall initially tested a 500-square-foot temporary space, where customers could see, touch and purchase much of the same merchandise they can purchase from QVC's television program or through iQVC, its e-commerce site. The space will also have broadcasting studios, so QVC @ The Mall can produce live television shows.
