The YWCA has opened its recently renovated Encore Market.
Thanks to crowd funding, the store has been upgraded and re-organized to be used by the organization’s clients and Regina residents.
Alexis Losie, Senior Director of Operations at the YWCA, worked hard to make the store a more inviting environment because it means so much to their clients.
“A resident who has been with us for a few years talked to me about how much she’s been able to use this store to decorate her room, to make her home here truly a home,” said Losie.
The store will offer affordable clothing and house hold items all under $5 — and unlike other thrift stores, all the proceeds will go toward women and children in need.
