Bob and Lori Brown successfully opened their first Style Encore Thursday, May 28, in Portage, MI. The Browns are experienced franchisees who also own the Plato’s Closets in East Lansing and Portage. There were about 60 people in line when they opened their doors – and what followed was a mad rush to the handbag section! Every customer who came into the store absolutely loved their shopping experience – and many of them told friends who subsequently came in to shop later in the day. Next up for the Browns: Style Encore East Lansing!
