The Encore Story!

In the fall of 2008, Southfield Christian School received an email from a former SCS board chairman informing us about a resale store in Jackson, Michigan. The resale store was created to provide income for Jackson Christian School. Two or three trips to Jackson by the SCS administrators and board members confirmed the wisdom of pursuing such a store for Southfield Christian School.

Another SCS board member (a commercial real estate broker), located a 21,000 square foot property for us at Twelve Mile and Southfield Roads and began negotiations with the landlords. Negotiations were arduous and time-consuming but finally a lease was signed and the process of renovation was begun. After several months of hard work Encore Upscale Resale was ready to open on May 3, 2010.

The store management team consists of a general manager, volunteer manager and acquisition/marketing managers. Besides the management team, there are over 300 volunteers who devote time and energy to Encore. The store not only provides income for SCS, but it also serves as a center for community service and for Christian ministry to all who come through the doors.

Without the faithful dedication of the volunteer staff—who sort and displaying clothing items,  prep/price and display home good items,  maintaine the facility,  help customers find what they want and operate the cash registers—the store could not function.  Donations of merchandise are received daily from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
