    Funny - just got a call from my Body Shop rep after I saw this thread. I was hoping she was going to tell me she was switching to PC. No such luck - she wanted to tell me about the skin care deal, buy 2 get 1 free.

    Usually you take a crash to a body shop.

    First time I ever heard of taking a body shop to a crash.

    I saw nothing in the media yet so it may not be public yet or may not be finalized or some other scenario...

    For those who haven't heard of them, they sell Body Shop products through home parties. They're the same items you can get at the Body Shop stores. In fact, when there's a popular item, stores get first dibs on the inventory. So the consultants lose out. The parties are a good way to try things out before buying.

    I just talked with my friend, and she said they're going out of business April 30th. The company's giving consultants an extra percentage on sales until then.

    My first thought - who was it that was "way up there" in HO that left PC a couple years back....isn't this the company she left us for? Maybe I'm totally mistaken, this is just the first thing that popped in my mind. My other thought - I'm invited to a Body Shop party on Saturday. I cant go, I have a show, but I was gonna take a look at the website. Awful for the consultants, I cant imagine.

    You are right, Cindy - I thought that too when I first read this. But I can't remember her name either! I remember that she left just before Nat'l Conference, and they had to switch everything around, because she was supposed to be onstage quite a bit...

    I was thinking the same thing! I think if I am not mistaken she started the 3-2-1 idea for consultants.
    I am pretty sure she left PC for them. Just can't remember the name!

    That's okay - because if I'm not mistaken, it was Jean Jonas who took her place - and I :love: LOVE :love: Jean!
