After completing a spin off from GCI Liberty and changing its name from Liberty Interactive, Qurate Retail, parent of QVC and HSN among other retail operations, posted first quarter net income of $142 million, or 30 cents per share, versus $91 million, or 20 cents per share, in the year-before period.
HSN has partnered with chef Michael and Liz Symon to launch Symon Home, their first collection of cooking and entertaining products.
Liberty Interactive Corporation is renaming itself the Qurate Retail Group.
HSN and the University of Tampa’s John P. Lowth Entrepreneurship Center, Sykes College of Business, are hosting the second American Dreams Academy— an interactive, educational and hands-on two-day experience for emerging entrepreneurs.
HSN has formed a new partnership with an investment company as the retailer continues to expand its American Dreams entrepreneur program.
