    Default Some "Recovery" Avon pulls out of Ireland

    Just breaking and expect something on the website shortly.

    Apparently Avon cosmetics which has been a great supporter of part time work for women for decades is pulling out of Ireland due to the continuing recession here.

    UPDATE: Now confirmed.

    Pulling out? You mean they'll stop sending women to houses?
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    I hope they leave some stock behind so that Brer Bruton can continue to put lipstick on the pig that is our economy,

    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    It's a bit odd to judge an economic recovery on the state of Avon cosmetics and their cost-cutting measures.

    Avon is reassessing its long-term business plan, and in December said it will cut about 1,500 positions and also exit the South Korea and Vietnam markets as part of its broader plan to save costs. Ms. McCoy has pointed to Brazil, Russia and China as countries where the company needs to grow.

    Avon, with it's $10 billion a year in sales and 6 million agents is insignificant,

    Yet Enda holds a presser every time some airhead opens a nail bar in Leitrim,

    Littlewoods has probably eaten into the Avon market. That and increased access to broadband.

    I have no evidence for those claims, it's just my gut feeling from listening to Lady SIL and her friends talking about stuff like that (the Littlewoods bit, the broadband thing is my guess).

    Id say it was millions of women.

    This will truly affect every home.

    I just got a call from my mother there. She's in tears. How will she pay Trevelyn's rent without her Avon money? She's probably have to sell the youngest to the Pirates.

    This thread is going to be really entertaining in the way the systematic importance of Avon to the economy will be exaggerated.
