Winmark to Launch Style Encore Chain in Canada
Style Encore is Coming to Canada
Winmark Corporation-owned women’s resale concept Style Encore will launch its first Canadian store location next year, and the company is actively seeking franchisees for more than 40 territories nationally.
Style Encore caters to women in their late 20’s and upwards, selling gently-used clothing, footwear, handbags and accessories. Fashions range from casual to dressy, with Style Encore buying items that have been in retail stores within the past couple of years in order to reflect current trends. Unlike consignment, Style Encore pays cash on the spot for items it wants for its stores, and walk-ins are welcome. Style Encore stocks a variety of women’s sizes, ranging from size 0 to 4X. The company also makes it clear that it doesn’t sell counterfeits, and takes measures to ensure brand authenticity.
