Market America, a global product brokerage and internet marketing company and owner of the award-winning global e-commerce site, SHOP.COM, has been ranked #15 in the Business North Carolina Top 125 for 2020. This year’s list is based on 2019 revenue. While company leadership is honored to receive this prestigious ranking, this news comes during a very unusual year of business for all companies worldwide. At present, health and safety are of the highest concerns for Market America | SHOP.COM, its customers and employees with so many unknowns that businesses continue to face during the pandemic. Just last month, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that close to 15 million Americans were not able to find work because their employer closed or lost business due to the pandemic. Additionally, close to 4 million people were prevented from looking for work due to the pandemic.
In March, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security deemed Market America | SHOP.COM an essential business, so the company has been fortunate to retain every single employee during the pandemic; in fact, the company has needed to expand its employee base. With the majority of office employees successfully working from home, Market America | SHOP.COM is recruiting and hiring to expand its team, providing job opportunities to those who may have lost their livelihood due to COVID-19.
