About Style Encore® Franchising

A New Concept for Women's Apparel

For nearly 30 years, Winmark® has pioneered the "ultra-high-value" retailing niche, developing dynamic, proven brands that have thrived in the retail-resale marketplace. Style Encore is the latest of those brands and further proves that Winmark's commitment to providing gently used, high-quality merchandise continues to resonate with customers.

What Makes Style Encore Different?

Winmark's brands are carefully designed to fill the marketplace gap between costly retail stores and low-quality, secondhand retail experiences. Style Encore is no different— our stores provide a vibrant mix of high quality, gently used apparel, shoes and accessories specifically for women.

Why do customers continue to make our Style Encore brand a success?

  • Our cash on the spot philosophy versus the consignment competition that pays when your items sell
  • Our 50% to 90% savings on the latest trends and styles
  • Our eclectic, constantly changing inventory of premier brands from Gucci® and Louis Vuitton® to Ann Taylor® and Loft®
  • Our wide array of different styles for women of nearly any age
  • Our personalized, boutique-inspired customer service
  • Our approach that caters to casual shoppers and refined fashionistas
  • The ability for customers to both buy from us and sell to us

Does this sound like something that is missing in your community? Is your local marketplace missing a venue that accommodates stylish and professional women of every age? If so, then Style Encore may be the brand your local consumers are looking for.

*The Average Store numbers are the 2016 Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit amounts stated in Item 19 of the 2017 Style Encore® Franchise Disclosure Document (as reported by the 35 stores that had been in operation at least one year as of December 31, 2016). Of the 35 reporting stores, 15 or 43% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Sales and 19 or 54% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Profit. The Top Quartile Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit only relates to 8 of the reporting Style Encore® Stores who ranked in the top 25% of the gross sales range. Of the 8 reporting stores in the top quartile, 1 or 13% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Sales and 2 or 25% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Profit. A new franchisee’s results will likely differ from these results.
