Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gently used clothing, accessories, and decor at Encore on Main in China Grove.
The friendly staff at Encore on Main helps value-conscious shoppers navigate 6,000 square feet of well-organized, gently used apparel and accessories by names such as Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch and Gymboree. Textile hunters can catch fine specimens such as Ann Taylor jeans ($16), an American Eagle hoodie ($13), or Ed Hardy tees ($28), which they bring home to mount on their trophy wall. Perusal of Encore’s extensive racks also reveals accessories, from which a beach-going fashionista might adorn an outfit with clinking bangles ($5 each), peacock-feather earrings ($5), and a Vera Bradley beach bag ($50). Meanwhile, parents pluck Gymboree and OshKosh wearables from hangers, squeeze them to make sure they're ripe, and give them to their tots, who frolic in Encore’s play area before leaving with a Fisher-Price swing ($65).
