Double Take may be a second-hand store, but “it’s not second class.”
“We try to make the store look more like a regular retail store and not a second-hand store,” says manager Kathy Webster. Each piece of donated clothing is steam-cleaned and pressed, and passes a rigorous quality inspection before going on the sales floor.
Double Take is a non-profit program administered by The Yonge Street Mission, and has a mandate to serve the communities of Regent Park, Moss Park and St. Jamestown, where many people live on limited incomes.
“Many of the food bank users, clients, shop here. We're glad to be able to provide an environment that is nice, and they don't have to feel like second-class citizens,” she said. “It may be second hand, but it's not second class.”

Double take it great, they have tons of women’s wear all cheaply priced. A nice addition is the show room which has antiques and beautiful leather purses for a little more money-but it goes to a good cause! The only thing is that you have to keep asking for them to open up the change room.
