Officials with the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) as well as the Village of Barrington recently attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony that signaled the grand opening of Heads Up Shirt Shop.
Heads Up Shirt Shop is the latest addition to the group of Heads Up Family stores. These stores include Heads Up Specialties, Heads Up Boutique and Heads Up Apparel.
Heads Up Shirt Shop is the first t-shirt store located within Barrington. The store has equipment to complete full-color logos or other designs on the garments. The store is also capable of one-hour printing.
The owner of the store is Dan Paxton, and the president is his daughter, Jessica Young. The store first opened the Heads Up Boutique five years ago in 2011. At first they sold personalized brides gifts, but the store has no extended to more than 3,000 square feet of business. It creates personalized gifts for men, women, children and every occasion.
The most recent project for Heads Up Boutique was a partnership with Barrington High School. The company made the school’s spirit wear available online, in-store and at football games.
Attendees at the ribbon cutting ceremony included John Jackson, Balancing Life’s Challenges; Suzanne Corr, BAAC president and CEO; Amber Luczak, Edward Jones Financial; Tom Cramer, Wintrust Mortgage; and others.
