Half Price Tees is a family-owned and operated imprinted apparel business in beautiful, historic, downtown Durango, Colorado. We have been a part of the Durango and Four Corners communities for over 25 years.
The story of Half Price Tees began in the small ski resort town of Taos, New Mexico.
Our Durango retail store started as part of a chain of locations across the U.S. Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions. The parent company, T-Shirt Purveyors, owned and operated five Half Price Tees retail stores in Taos, Flagstaff, Arizona, Sedona, Arizona, Aspen, Colorado, and Durango, Colorado. They also owned and operated a screen print and embroidery factory in Taos that supplied the five stores as well as other wholesale customers.
In the late 1990's, T-Shirt Purveyors decided to sell the Half Price Tees retail stores to individual buyers. The Durango store was purchased in 1999 and came under current ownership in 2004. It is the only Half Price Tees store out of the original five still in operation.
In 2004, Half Price Tees began to offer full service embroidery, screen print, and graphic design services to wholesale clients through their newly created division, Durango Embroidery & Print. Our custom apparel division has grown exponentially in past decade and has expanded our customer base nationwide and internationally. We have accomplished this growth through outstanding customer service, competitive pricing and guaranteed results.
On February 22, 2008, a devastating block fire in downtown Durango completely destroyed our location along with two neighboring businesses. Despite losing everything, we quickly relocated to a temporary location and delivered a custom screen print job to a client just seven days after the fire - still on time. We reopened our retail store in that temporary location on May 1, 2008.
We were able to move back into our original location on April 19, 2009 after a complete building reconstruction and unbelievable support from the Durango community and our awesome landlord. We continue to expand our operations and thrive thanks to our loyal customers and supporters.
Our facilities in Downtown Durango encompass approximately 4,400 square feet, divided equally between our retail store and wholesale apparel operations.
