Owners of Once Upon a Child, Plato's Closet open women's fashion store

VESTAL, N.Y. - The owners of two second-hand stores on the Vestal Parkway have opened a third business going after a different demographic.

Style Encore sells gently used clothing and accessories to women 25 and older.

The store focuses on business-casual apparel with a large selection of shoes and boots, jeans and jewelry, skirts and dresses, handbags and even workout clothes.

Style Encore pays cash on the spot but items must be of high quality, in good condition, and in style.

Co-Owner John Archie says the store has the feel of a boutique.

"This is a place for women to come. Ditch your boyfriend, ditch your husband. You're away from the kids. This is Me Time for all the ladies. So, we try to make it a very pleasant environment and atmosphere for everybody," said Archie.

Archie and his partners also own Once Upon a Child, which sells second hand children's items, and Plato's Closet which carries fashionable used clothing for teenagers and young adults.

All three are in the same shopping plaza.

Style Encore is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m Monday through Saturday, noon to 5:00 p.m on Sundays.
