Ding Dong! Avon calling!
PRINCETON — Joan Chase of Princeton can still remember the exact time and day she signed a contract to be an independent sales representative with Avon – a little after 3 p.m. on Halloween in 1963.
At that time in her life, she was working as a hostess where she had a break between the hours of 2 and 5 p.m. Her mother told her she needed to find something to do between those hours and suggested she sell Avon.
Chase admits she never saw herself as a salesperson at that time. She wasn’t even totally sold on wearing make-up. But she decided to give it a shot, so she left the restaurant on break and headed over to the area manager’s home on Homer Street. By 3 p.m., it was official; she was an independent sales representative.
