In 2002, after ten years of being single Encore man finally got hitched to Encore woman to become one of the north's largest independent man and woman fashion stores. Operating on the same principles as Encore man we offer high street brands such as French Connection. Store owner Paul Woods explains his investment decision

"It became increasingly clear through feedback from our female customers that they wished they had somewhere similar to Encore man to shop for their own wardrobe. So our response was why don’t we do it?"
