A new shop recently opened up in Brookside in place of the old Pickerman’s Sandwich Shop. It is a Chicago based business call The T-Shirt Deli. This shop is not a place where you can eat t-shirts or make sandwiches, though it is somewhat funny opening in what was once an actual deli. It is a place where customers can create their own custom t-shirts and other apparel. So it is sort of like a deli, but for t-shirts.
The Brookside location is part of a small chain of three T-Shirt Delis, the other two being in Chicago. The store offers the opportunities for customers to create their own men’s, women’s, kid’s, and even dog’s t-shirts, hoodies, and underwear. Pricing is determined by the article of clothing and the amount of lettering or images in the design. The shirts are created on the spot, wrapped, and come with a bag of chips just like your local deli.
The T-Shirt Deli was recently featured in this Kansas City Star article and it references the shop owner’s Kansas City and even Brookside connection. Has anyone tried out the T-Shirt Deli yet? If so what kind of shirt did you make ?
