Dan Hasson Clothier's  History

The history of how Dan Hasson Clothier began business is rich. Dan grew up in the small town of Dresden, Ontario where there were three menswear stores. In high school, he worked in one of these menswear stores, arguably the most “high end” of them all. This is where his love of the industry began. He later attended St. Clair to complete a business degree and soon became an assistant buyer at the Grafton Group.

As the retail landscape changed over time, Dan found himself being asked to purchase cheaper product and increase the mark up…something that he felt went against his morals. Dan believes in great product, reasonable prices, and excellent services.  Wanting to practice those beliefs rather than searching for ways to make the highest profit margin, Dan opened his first location in White Oaks Mall (1976). 

In 1995, Dan decided that he wanted be be part of the rejuvenation of downtown and moved into a street level business. Shortly after, he moved to a space inside what is now called Citi Plaza (1998-2009).  But something was missing for Dan…he wanted to move back out onto the street where he could see what was happening and truly be immersed in the downtown community. His business is now located on Dundas Street across from the Delta Hotel where he is able to get a front row seat to all of the happenings.
