Shop Resale for Everyday Bargains: Amazing Quality and Savings
About a month ago my son was in need of a dress shirt for his band concert, and he did not have a black shirt on hand. There is a resale shop in my neighborhood just about two miles from our home. I had wanted to go there but didn’t have a need. With only minutes left before the concert, Encore Upscale Resale was our choice. That night would be the night I spent the best $2.10 I ever spent on something I needed.
Shop Resale And Save Big
Upon entering the resale shop, Encore, I was impressed at the cleanliness, organization and bright atmosphere in the store. I was even more delighted because the store was hosting 50 percent off the day we went. As we walked in, we could get a snapshot view of the entire store from the main entrance. There were women’s clothing and outerwear, girls and boys wear, shoes and other household items. You could see books on the shelves and some small furniture items.
Easy To Locate
As we searched for the black shirt, it was easy to find. There were two racks of teen/men shirts. We immediately spotted the shirt….the price was $4.20. The price really excited me because I knew I was getting a real bargain. The style and quality of a shirt like the one we bought retails for around $25.00.
When I looked at the shirt, I knew that my son would be able to fit into it. I did not even have him try on the shirt. We grabbed the shirt, headed to the checkout, and went home. I was pleased that the shirt was clean, and it only needed a touch up with the iron.
Purchases Benefit Local School
The Encore Upscale Resale Shop is an on-going fundraiser for one of the local private schools in the community. I am especially delighted that we could support their efforts in a tiny way. I know that I will return to this shop one day soon to support the cause of education and help my family save money at the same time.
One last thought, you can donate your gently used or new items to shops likes these, they will appreciate your contribution.
