Once Upon A Child celebrates its 400th milestone opening

The Winmark Corporation brand has enjoyed a strong two years, and is now celebrating the opening of its 400th location

Winmark Corporation, a leading North American franchisor of sustainable brands has announced the opening of a milestone 400th location for its children’s clothes and accessories retail resale brand, Once Upon A Child. The brand celebrated its opening last month on September 23 in Douglasville, Georgia.

Winmark celebrated this opening with multi-unit franchisee, Allison Spartis, who with her second Once Upon A Child location, has opened the brand’s 400th unit.

“It’s an incredible feeling to have opened our 400th Once Upon A Child location and to witness the impact our brands have on their communities,” said Renae Gaudette, president of franchising at Winmark Corporation.

“I can’t think of a more fitting franchisee partner than Allison to be able to share this experience with. Allison is everything we look for in a franchisee – she is compassionate, community-driven, a leader in our network, and understands the sustainable value our retail resale brands bring to families.

“As we continue to grow, our impact will only strengthen as we aim to further our position as the industry leader in resale and sustainability. Our team is regularly evaluating potential markets for future expansion of all Winmark brands – and, while we’re already a household name for many, we’re looking forward to reaching even more families across North America in the years to come.”

Winmark’s five resale brands – Play It Again SportsPlato’s ClosetStyle EncoreMusic Go Round, and Once Upon A Child – have continued to grow despite the pandemic, and the resale industry is growing at a rapid rate too.
