While Congress is on break during August, United States Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) visited the 60 employees at the Princess House Distribution Center located in Rural Hall, NC. The Direct Selling Association, national trade organization for the direct selling industry, works with members like Princess House - and executive leaders such as Connie Tang, Princess House CEO and DSA Vice Chairman - to identify opportunities to meet their elected officials.
The facility distributes to the eastern United States; Midwest and the Rocky Mountain states for Princess House, a direct seller of cookware, glassware, flatware and cutlery. The company has used the 200,000 sq. ft. facility in Rural Hall since 1989 for distribution, warehousing and returns processing.
Rep. Foxx toured the facility and saw all aspects of business including receiving, processing, picking and shipping. She also met with the employees and learned more about how the facility supports thousands of Princess House Consultants across the country, as well as local vendors.
“It was great to meet with folks at Princess House in Rural Hall. Princess House plays a big role in the direct selling industry that provides many North Carolinians opportunities to earn their own income and start small businesses. Supporting opportunities for more jobs and cutting red tape is key to expanding our thriving economy. In Washington, I’m working to support these job creators and entrepreneurs with policies that provide them greater freedom and flexibility to operate independently,” stated U.S. Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.
“It was a pleasure to host Rep. Foxx at our facility and showcase our operation. We are very appreciative of Rep. Foxx meeting with our team and taking a direct interest in them. We thank her for supporting the Direct Selling industry and our independent consultants,” said Russ Whittle, vice president of operational excellence, Princess House and Direct Selling Association member.
