After going on the air last year, The Jewelry Channel--not to be confused with Jewelry Television--will broadcast for the last time on July 5th. President Sri Burugapalli blamed the shut down on not being able to find an investor and "the current disfavor of home shopping." (Queen Bea begs to differ! Home shopping isn't currently disfavored, it has always been disfavored! Hasn't this guy ever heard of the home shopping stigma?)
The Jewelry Channel is one of the multitude of shopping channels found on satellite. I just can't bring myself to watch them. However, I'll be stopping by their website over the next few weeks because there will most likely be some rockin' clearance deals.
Anyway, over one hundred people in Round Rock, Texas are losing their jobs. My heart goes out to them and I wish them all the best.
