Style Encore is the solution for the fashion needs of women. Our typical customers are career women, young professionals just getting started in the business world, moms and shoppers who are fashion, bargain and recycling conscious.
There is an amazing amount of nearly-new clothing hidden in every woman’s closet. Did you know a large percentage of this inventory still has the tags on it? It’s true! By targeting women who are fashion conscious and love to change styles often but want a great value at the same time, Style Encore franchisees build tremendous client loyalty and repeat business by creating a marketplace in which both the seller and buyer profit.
At Style Encore everyone wins: the seller because they now have a market to sell clothing, handbags, shoes and accessories they no longer want, and the buyer because they can purchase items at up to 50% – 70% off regular retail pricing. The customer who both buys and sells to our stores gets the added benefit of payment on the spot plus great savings on their purchase!
