Canada's Worst Closet Winner Announced

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2010) -

The title of Canada's Worst Closet goes to Krishan J. from Toronto, Ontario. Our search began in September when we sent out a call for Canadians to submit pictures of their messy closets. Our search for Canada's Worst Closet lasted a month, and the response from Canadians was overwhelming.

While 'messy closet owner' is not a title most would be proud of, messy closets seem to be a common fad. Over 579 Canadians joined the Facebook page and 170 were brave enough to send in pictures of their messy closets.

Over the years, Tricore Industries has focused on building quality construction furniture while making installation really easy. With EZ UP, a special hinge system allows for installation in very little time. The newest line of modular, flexible and functional storage systems for closets, laundry rooms and for any other room in your house are available through Canadian Tire stores across Canada.

About Your Shop Girl

Suzanne Colmer's impeccable sense of style had its humble beginnings in the most unlikely of places - the suburbs of Toronto, Canada. Yearning to break free from the monotony of the mall, Suzanne became a frequenter of the city's downtown boutiques - constantly searching out the "perfect" pairings to her growing collection. Before long, a true fashionista was born.

In an effort to combine her instincts with instruction once completing her undergrad at the University of Toronto, Suzanne became a graduate of George Brown's Image Consulting program. Soon after, Suzanne's thirst for knowledge lead her to the centre of fashion itself - Paris, France, where she studied at the prestigious Sorbonne University; then onto New York to conquer the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Suzanne's passion for her career drives her to seek perfection with every purchase. Constantly on the lookout for the latest trends, she combines her fashion savvy with a unique ability to flatter every body type, style and colouring - creating the perfect look every time.
