I have been an Encore Clothing customer for many years and enjoy the quality of their clothing. The store always smells fresh and clean, lacking the usual second hand clothing “aroma”. LISA AMERIKANOS

Encore Clothing’s focus is to help the community both economically and environmentally. What would otherwise be considered waste products are transformed into saleable items. This creates employment opportunities and is both socially and environmentally responsible.

Developed as a sustainable business unit, the purpose of Encore Clothing is to sell good quality preloved clothing at affordable prices. The preloved garments undergo stringent quality control procedures, with each garment checked, laundered, sorted, ironed and racked for sale. Customers can also enjoy an “Encore Evening” by booking the store for an after hours event to shop and enjoy drinks and nibbles. A loyalty card program has been developed to reward frequent shoppers.
