A celebration was held at Cliff Anschütz Chevrolet in Alpena on Friday when a Mary Kay unit in northeast Michigan received a Chevy Traverse for exceeding sales targets even during a pandemic. Above, Bruce Anschütz, left, claps after handing the keys to the SUV to Mary Kay Senior Sales Director Charmaine Lipscomb. She will drive the vehicle for the next two years with no car payments. Then, she said, they’ll qualify for another car. Next to Lipscomb, from left, are team leader Sherryl Kelly, Future Sales Director Theresa Niles, independent beauty consultants Bernie Klimaszewski, Diana Amlotte and Cassie Dubie, and Lipscomb’s mother Anett Deadman.
“Our unit has just been promoted to the Premier Plus Car because our unit is doing so incredibly well.” said Lipscomb, formerly from Alpena and now living in Traverse City. Most of the 88 members of the unit live in the Alpena area. “Literally, I’ve had free Mary Kay cars for 20 years.” Lipscomb said, adding that six or seven other people in the area were also allowed to drive free Mary Kay cars to meet and exceed sales targets. “It’s just a wonderful advantage.”
According to a press release from Mary Kay, there are currently more than 3,600 Mary Kay career cars on the road.
Lipscomb said the pandemic actually increased their business because they could reach more people virtually.
Mary Kay sells more than just beauty products, Kelly said.
“We have a charitable foundation and I work with our local animal shelter (Hope Shores Alliance) and they have raised over $ 95,000 in the last 15 years.” from the Mary Kay Charitable Foundation. She added that the foundation also supports doctors working on cures for cancers that affect women.
