Jewelry Vendor Chuck Clemency To Exit ShopHQ For Shop LC

May 28, 2020

This is blockbuster news in the home shopping world: Jewelry vendor and Jersey guy Chuck Clemency is leaving ShopHQ, where he has been forever, for Shop LC!

We just got back from an evening walk and checked Facebook and saw a post from Clemency.

“When opportunity knocks … I answer,” he wrote. “And I want ALL of you to come along. The fastest-growing, most innovative and most importantly — JEWELRY FOCUSED-network — ShopLC will be my new home starting in July.”

Clemency said more specifics and updates will follow.

Well, now two of ShopHQ’s “Three Amigos” — jewelry vendors Clemency, Paul Deasy and Michael Valitutti — have exited that home shopping network, although we heard Deasy is supposedly on his way back to Minnesota.

We enjoy watching Clemency, but really haven’t been wowed by his collection much recently. But we did break down and purchase his diamond “smile” necklace, similar to a Tiffany’s “T” design, and think it is gorgeous.

Can’t say that we’ve watched Shop LC, but we will tune in to see what Clemency has to offer.

Thanks to Queen Celeste for this tip about Shop LC.

Host Dan Dennis Leaves Shop LC

December 10, 2018

Dan Dennis has signed off as a host on Shop LC.

Dennis, a fixture on HSN for many years and a rock hound to boot, on Facebook said that it was with “mixed emotions” and he and Shop LC “had parted ways.”

We don’t have Shop LC at home, and have only seen it while exercising at the gym in our office complex.

Dennis — originally from Clifton, N.J., a town we know well — had to relocate to Austin, Texas, for the Shop LC gig.

And he and his family have had a tough go of it in recent years, losing a son.

We’ll be interested to heat about his next plans.

Liquidation Channel Renamed Shop LC

January 12, 2017

Liquidation Channel — once The Jewelry Channel — has now relaunched as Shop LC, the network said Wednesday.

The name reminds us of Evine’s old handle, ShopNBC.

The Liquidation Channel — where veteran home shopping hosts Dan Dennis and Shawn Wilsie now toil — announced that its new moniker reflects its change in strategy over the past few years.

Shortly after The Jewelry Channel debuted in 2007, the United States entered the Great Recession, and sales declined, according to the network’s press release.

“Fully expecting to liquidate merchandise and cease operations, TJC changed its name to Liquidation Channel,” the release said. “However, instead of going out of business, the network experienced steady growth and has been operating as Liquidation Channel since 2008.”

Shop LC’s business model “has evolved into a more expansive shopping experience,” we are told.

“Beyond jewelry and gemstones, precious metals and collectibles, Shop LC features handbags and fashion accessories, healthcare and beauty essentials, the latest in cooking and kitchen supplies as well as luxurious, comfortable bedding and bath products for the whole family,” the release says.

“The rebrand to Shop LC is about evolution,” Shop LC President Kevin Lyons said in a statement. “The company is clearly here to stay, and Shop LC is a name that accurately reflects our current business model and wide-ranging merchandise offerings. We’re finding more ways to deliver joy.”

The network’s plans include growing non-jewelry sales, diversifying the merchandise mix and “claiming significant market share in the value-oriented retail industry.”

In addition to the name change, Shop LC is designing new broadcast studios, updating television and website graphics and expanding its corporate headquarters.

“Shop LC personifies low cost, and we’ve claimed that space within the digital television shopping industry,” Lyons said.

Here is the boilerplate on Shop LC:

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Shop LC (formerly Liquidation Channel), is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vaibhav Global Ltd. (VGL), a vertically integrated company with global sourcing and manufacturing capabilities.

Shop LC is a value-conscious, interactive retailer focused on the fine jewelry, beauty, fashion, home decor and lifestyle product categories. Established in 2007, Shop LC reaches approximately 80 million U.S. households.
