Overview

Love to shop? Crazy about fashion? Then make it your business. Style Encore buys and sells gently used apparel, shoes, handbags and accessories to women in their mid-twenties and older. We pay our customers cash on the spot for their gently used merchandise, and help them stretch their limited budgets further by offering them high quality, used merchandise at a fraction of the cost of new. Our stores are beautifully maintained and merchandised, providing our customers with a clean and comfortable shopping experience.

The stores range from 3,000 to 4,000 square feet and are in suburban centers and power strip malls. The franchise monitors trends and style changes so that the franchisees and their staff can focus on buying the right merchandise at the right price. The point of sale system has a built in pricing matrix, allowing the franchisees and their team to simply enter the items on a touch screen monitor to get a price quote for the customer. The stores pay cash on the spot to people who bring in gently used items purchased within the past couple of years. These items are then resold for 70% to 90% less than what the item would be new. No appointments are necessary for customers who wish to sell items, and they can sell all year round, no matter the season.

Why Choose Us?

Style Encore is the hottest and fastest growing franchise in women’s retail. We service the value-oriented customer who loves to find great merchandise at a great price. Our franchisees are fashionistas – they love to shop and they love style, and they pursue that passion with a business model that provides a fantastic return.

In addition:

  • The retail resale segment is hot right now, representing the fastest growing segment of retail today
  • Environmentally-friendly business models are driving the green economy
  • Recycling businesses focused on sustainability are on trend and growing, and are especially important to Gen Z and Millennial customers
  • The shared economy represents the greatest opportunity for entrepreneurs now and in the near future
  • The service resale retail stores provides to their customers makes us an important part of their communities

Despite the robust growth of Style Encore, plenty of opportunities remain for new stores. The franchise website lists the cities/areas in each state that the company would like growth in.

Winmark, the parent company for Style Encore, offers extensive training and support to store owners in areas such as business planning, pricing, styles and trends, retail site selection, marketing and advertising, and field operations.

Ideal Candidate

Style Encore prefers that its franchisees serve as hands-on store owners and operators, although the company can give consent for a franchisee to delegate the duties. That’s necessary for those owners who have multiple locations. The candidate must be passionate about the brand, the good purpose we serve to our communities and the good we do for the planet. No prior retail experience is required – in fact, most of our franchisees had no retail experience prior to joining our franchise.

Winmark reports that many of its franchisees become multi-brand owners (with the brands available being Once Upon a Child, Play It Again Sports, Plato’s Closet, Style Encore and Music Go Round). Franchisees who are interested in this possibility may also make ideal candidates.

History

Winmark Corporation, based in Minneapolis, is the parent for Style Encore and has been franchising the stores since 2013. Winmark focuses on used items, and its other franchises include Play It Again Sports, Once Upon A Child, Plato’s Closet and Music Go Round.

Training And Support

The training program consists of more than 75 hours of in-store and classroom training in areas such as store operations, merchandising and customer service.

Disclaimer

*The Average Store numbers are the 2018 Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit amounts stated in Item 19 of the 2019 Style Encore® Franchise Disclosure Document (as reported by the 55 stores that had been in operation at least one year as of December 29, 2018). Of the 55 reporting stores, 27 or 49% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Sales and 28 or 51% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Profit. The Top Quartile Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit only relates to 13 of the reporting Style Encore® Stores who ranked in the top 25% of the gross sales range. Of the 13 reporting stores in the top quartile, 3 or 23% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Sales and 4 or 31% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Profit. A new franchisee’s results will likely differ from these results.
