MINNEAPOLIS -- As consumers continue flocking to resale stores for greater discounts and to stretch their families’ budgets, Winmark Corporation’s resale brands are seeing the results and continuing to grow rapidly across the United States and Canada to meet demand.
Winmark Corporation’s children’s resale franchise, Once Upon A Child®, has opened its 300th location, following swiftly in the footsteps of its sister brand, Plato’s Closet®. The teen to 20-something resale franchise opened its 400th location earlier this year and was recently named the top franchise in the “$150,001 - $500,000 investment” category by Forbes magazine in its first annual Best and Worst in Franchising list. Once Upon A Child, ranked No. 1 in its category by Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 for 20 years straight, is planning on opening 29 new stores in 2014 with more planned for 2015.
