Sad News for The Angel Company

I work for two amazing companies, Stampin' Up! and RE/MAX in the Hills. Both of which are run by women who are bright and strong in faith. Both women have worked hard and achieved great success. They are both honest, fair, loyal, with their priorities in order and women of integrity. I am blessed to be working for each of them.
I have wondered what "other" stamping companies are like to work for. I've especially wondered about The Angel Company and although I've never ordered any products or met anyone who works for them, I did check them out before signing up with Stampin' Up. I have never heard anything bad about this company so the following news was heartbreaking to read and I'll be praying for the company's consultants.

It is with great sadness that I must announce we are hanging up our wings. These past several years our industry has faced enormous challenges and as a result, we have seen many companies close their doors. We continued to hope we could see The Angel Company through this recession and back into prosperous days and we held onto this hope as long as we could.

One of the largest challenges affecting each of us is our industry not being able to support all of the direct sales companies in our field. Even in a healthy economy, we are a niche market trying to compete for a very limited number of distributors. As a small company, this has been a grueling challenge for us. Times are tough for everyone ~ in direct sales and retail environments.

I would like to thank each of you for being an customer and Angel these past 14 years. Indeed, it has been a pleasure to serve you.
