A POPULAR Black Country T-shirt business is relocating to the Halesowen area.

Black Country T-Shirts, which offers Black Country themed products and garment printing services, will be moving from its current location in Dudley town centre to a unit on Shell Corner.

The business, winner of the Corporate Livewire Innovation and Excellence Award for T-Shirt Printer of the Year in 2021, was spurred to move to the town which has an array of local independent businesses already in the area.

Company director, Paul Palmer, said: “I live locally so I know just how vibrant Shell Corner’s mix of businesses is.

"We’ve got great local, independent shops already so bringing Black Country T-Shirts to Shell Corner will add to that feel of the place.

“We are hoping to open in the coming weeks once we have moved from our former location in Dudley town centre, and I look forward to welcoming customers new and old to see what we have to offer.”

Councillor Stuart Henley, councillor for Shell Corner, Hurst Green and Halesowen North, said: “I’ve known Paul for a long time, so I’m delighted he has chosen to relocate to Shell Corner.

"He’s right in saying we have a great mix of businesses serving local residents, and with Black Country T-Shirts now based here too there is even more reason to visit Shell Corner.

“I still want to see some more developments in the area to keep up the positive progress we are making.

"It would be great to get some better car parking facilities for shoppers visiting the town, and I am grateful to Dudley Council who are investigating this for us now.”
