Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) May 01, 2015
The week of May 4-9, 2015 is a special one for Encore! Upscale Resale. The store is celebrating their five year anniversary with extra savings for the whole store. Merchandise from every department will be marked down off the already affordable prices. May 5, the actual date the store opened in 2010, will be Customer Appreciation Day. Each customer will be able to celebrate with complimentary cake and punch. Hourly drawings will add to the excitement of the day.
Encore is not a traditional resale store. All the items sold by the store were donated, and the staff carefully combs through each item to ensure that the products sold are high quality – frequently a notch above what is typically found in resale stores.
More significant, the store supports the ministry of Southfield Christian School (Southfield, Michigan). The funds raised by the store provide tuition assistance for students wishing to attend Southfield Christian. The store is 95% staffed by volunteers who give up their time and talents to support this ministry.
In five years, the store has generated over $1 million to support the students and ministries of Southfield Christian. Without the generosity of the people who have donated items, faithful customers, and a devoted volunteer staff, this amazing landmark would not have been possible.
Encore! Upscale Resale is located at 29080 Southfield Road, Southfield, Michigan on the northeast corner of Southfield Road and Twelve Mile Road.
Encore! General Manager Scott Kowalski had this to say: “God has blessed us in incredible ways these past five years. I’m so grateful and humbled by all of the ways He’s provided for this store. From incredible volunteers who selflessly give of their time, to the people who care enough about Southfield Christian School to donate to our store, to the thousands and thousands of great customers we’ve had over the years – God is good!”
