Work Smart Clothing Factory

PHOTO BY DEBBIE SADLON Saturday, June 6, 2015; Work Smart Clothing Factory, 11645 Lorain Avenue: The Work Smart Clothing Store reopened in December after being closed for four months due to fire damage. Owner Nick Katsaros, age 79, says he first opened the store in 1980. He says the building originally housed a Cleveland Trust Bank and the vault is still in the building. Katsoros says the corner of W. 117th and Lorain Avenue used to be the end of the Street Car Line. As a child, he remembers his parents recalling that people would ride to the end of the line, and chose from four movie theatres to attend in the immediate area.

The fire started in an outlet for a window air conditioner. Katsaros opened the Work Smart Clothing store in 1980 where he sells everyday work clothes – “basic stuff, nothing fancy.” He says people who live in the neighborhood and former residents keep coming back because his prices are “so good.” The building and lost merchandize were restored and replenished with the help of insurance.
