Shirty Harry's was founded in 2000 by local designer Harry Atwood. Harry is the winner of several graphic design awards and has been featured in numerous magazines, including Art in Apparel, Cotton as Canvas, and Sleeves. After several years working with merchandise giants across the country, Harry decided to establish his own stores ten years ago. He set out to create a store that was "less T-shirt shop; more art gallery." That unique atmosphere has carried over to the four additional stores that Harry opened across the region. We are proud to feature "wearable art" created by local and international up-and-coming designers...you won't see anything like our collections in department stores!
Today, you'll still find Harry at one of our locations, serving customers cocktails; hosting our incredibly popular "Photos & Polos" contest; or sponsoring any one of our many noted charity events.
Our vision is to present a solution to any potential customer, no matter what the circumstances. We are backed by an ambitious staff with the same drive to bring you the best possible service. The quality of what we offer combined with the care we provide is what makes us the best in town. But don’t take our word for it. Since 1980 we’ve annually been elected #1 in our business category by the Daily Post, and we plan to continue the tradition for years to come.
We combine emerging technology with reliable standards to bring the best possible service to our customers. Our business is built on a foundation of strength through satisfied customers and equally satisfied staff. We are honored that nearly 90% of our business is through repeat customers or referrals, and we have been profiled in numerous local publications for our employee rewards programs.
Our company was founded in 1970 and has been growing ever since. It began with a meager staff of two friends—Randy Conroy and Lincoln Goodwin. Randy and Lincoln established a new standard in the area for distinctive service with a guarantee that was previously unheard of. The business spread mainly through word of mouth, and as more satisfied customers shared their stories with others, additional branches were added throughout the area. Now, we have five locations and a staff of 65 to serve you.
