Avon's website has a search tool that allows users to locate the nearest Avon sales representative using an address, city, state or ZIP code. Avon is a direct-selling company, which means that it manufactures and sells products through individual representatives who are not affiliated with actual fixed retail locations.
The Avon website also allows users to search for individual sales representatives by entering a representative's name and state. Avon is considered the world's second-largest direct-selling company, and over 6.4 million representatives worldwide personally sell items from the company's beauty, cosmetics, household and personal care lines. Avon was founded in 1886 and is headquartered in New York City.
