Other in-house brands include People's Market, Once Upon a Time, Dexter Wong and UGP, along with which it is also a also a licensee in domestic market for global denim brand; Wrangler of USA, which it launched in August 2008.

According to Goh, manufacturing now accounted for less than 5 percent of Yen Global's business as more than 90 percent of their merchandise stocks like T-shirts and jeans are outsourced from factories in various AFTA countries.
