Congratulations to three new stores that opened Thursday, October 15, in Kentucky, Texas and Ontario – one new store for each of Winmark’s apparel brands!
In Owensboro, KY, longtime Once Upon A Child shoppers Carol Hulsey and her daughter Cate Coakley opened their own store. About 70 people were waiting in line for their doors to unlock and customers kept stopping back throughout the day with hopes to win some great prizes! Coakley is an Owensboro mom to three boys. She said she understands how expensive it is to raise kids today and she wanted to offer an affordable store for local families.
In Allen, TX, Mahala Ahearn opened the first Style Encore in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “This community is especially tight-knit,” Mahala said. “That’s why I chose Allen for my first store.” She said customers are so happy to finally have a store like Style Encore in their community.
After opening a Once Upon A Child in Toronto, ON, last year, Duff Kovacs and his wife Victoriya are now the new owners of a Plato’s Closet in Mississauga.
