The 3600 square foot Plato's Closet store at Brimley and Eglinton will require 12 to 16 employees, including Sales Associates, Assistant Managers, and Managers by the time it reaches its grand opening, slated for early May. Plato's Closet Scarborough buys and sells high quality, gently used apparel and accessories for cash. This provides 12-24 year olds with access to hot new trends at discounted prices.
"It was a natural choice," says General Manager Stephanie van Dam. "When one door closes another one opens, and for us that means fully trained staff that are looking for work through no fault of their own.
