"The people at our Rocky Mount distribution center are a strong and dedicated team that does a great job serving our customers every day," said John Hunter, QVC executive vice president of customer fulfillment services. "With more than 25 million packages shipped last year, the facility is clearly an important and growing part of QVC's success. We look forward to adding jobs and building on our thriving business relationships in Edgecombe County."
