Style Encore, the unique resale concept that specializes in clothing and accessories designed by women, for women, has announced the grand opening of its first location in Barrie at 555 Essa Rd., #A12. The brand is known for its affordable, gently used casual and business clothing, shoes, and accessories, providing local women in their late twenties and up with a store that not only puts cash back into their pockets but sells gently used brand name items for less.
Focusing on being a fashion-forward and sustainable shopping resource, the new Style Encore in Barrie opens on Thursday, May 12. Style Encore is part of Winmark – the Resale Company, a unique national retail resale franchise that focuses on sustainability, small business formation and providing Resale for Everyone.
Beginning Thursday, May 12, and throughout the weekend, local owners Jennifer and Christopher Azevedo are inviting guests to stop into Style Encore in Barrie to experience the following:
Thursday, May 12
Friday, May 13
Saturday, May 14
Sunday, May 15
• Double points for buys and sales
At Style Encore, consumers can expect a wide selection of the latest styles in casual and business attire at great prices, from leading brands such as Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Chico’s, Coach, Gap, Talbots, Lululemon and White House Black Market, among others. Unlike a typical consignment store, no appointment is necessary to sell clothing and accessories. Customers can achieve savings of up to 90 per cent off trendy, brand-name clothing and accessories and receive cash on the spot for gently used items that are outgrown or no longer wanted.
“Women like to have trendy, fashionable pieces in their closet for every occasion, so our goal is to make Style Encore the preferred store for bargain hunters and those who are environmentally conscious,” said Jennifer Azevedo. “Style Encore provides women the resource to sell items they no longer wear, get paid cash on the spot and then turn around and purchase new items at a tremendous value – up to 90 per cent off regular retail prices.”
Winmark’s resale concepts allow gently used clothing and accessories to end up in someone else’s closet rather than thrown into a landfill, providing a resource for shoppers looking to update their closet in a mindful environmental manner.
