Encore, 3407 Forest Drive Suite A: 2011   5 comments

Posted at 11:30 pm in Uncategorized

I'm not actually sure what Encore did or sold. One online directory lists it in the following, not very helpful, categories:

Categories: Home & Garden | Furniture | Used Furniture | Retail Shopping | Clothing | Vintage & Used Clothing

At any rate, it was in the same Forest Drive and Beltline location which used to house Jackson Camera, Ritz Camera and Brequoj, and is now gone.

  1. If I am not mistaken Encore was essentially a consignment store. I am not sure if they were aiming at higher end clothing and accessories or just took anything that they could get.

    That little center has always seemed strangely run down and inconsistent with what was once a big mall across the street. Even in Richland Mall's heyday this center always looked a little depressed to me.

  2. Doesn't the mayor of Forest Acres own the pharmacy that is also in there.
    It's another WTF piece of commercial real estate. Great location, but just dead.

  3. Wasn't Encore Scoggins drugstore in the 1950's and 1960's. We lived on the west side of Valley Rd. during 1957 and 1958 when Richland Mall was just a huge wooded lot with a Colonial Store close to the corner of Forest Dr and Beltline.

  4. I thought this was originally a Red Dot store and was a stand alone store. Kelly's Open Air Market was at center of the parking lot and Scoggins Drug Store was next to Kelly's facing Beltline.

  5. Yes- Encore was a high end ladies' clothes consignment store. Great location but I suspect the run down look of the place did not invite the women with they needed to shop there. This place was a liquor store for years.

    It is a mystery how this terrific location remains a bunch of tumble down buildings leftover from the 50s or 60s. I'd love to see someone bulldoze it all and do something nice.

    PAL Travel on this corner was originally Nates Pharmacy.
