Three Winmark Franchises Open on the East Coast

Congratulations to three Winmark franchisees who each opened new stores July 28 along the East Coast.

In Hamden, CT, new franchisee Rick Myers opened his first Plato’s Closet. A DJ kept the customers energized while they waited in line for the doors to open – and when they did, sneakers were the hot item on everyone’s list in Hamden.


Multiple-store owners Julie and Ryan Simmons opened their first Once Upon A Child in Dickson City, PA. They also own the Plato’s Closet and Style Encore in Dickson City, as well as the Plato’s Closet in Allentown. Shoppers found a tent full of strollers, play yards and other great equipment – and kids found a petting zoo, mini-ponies, ducks and chickens.2016_July_Simmons_Owners

And south of that in Daytona Beach, FL, new franchisees Dan and Cathy Carlson opened their first Once Upon A Child. The weather was hot and so were the great deals inside the beautiful, new store.2016_July_Carlson_Exterior_Line
