After five years without a shop, Milford’s own Main Street Tees finally has an address on the street of the same name.
The t-shirt and printing company opened a storefront in downtown Milford. Located at 338 N. Main St., the shop is a testament to the work of owners Aaron and Megan Moorhouse when it comes to creating images on shirts and other items.
“We wanted to open a showcase to offer a selection in retail and also to support businesses and events and the like,” he said. “We wanted pedestrian traffic and exposure.”
The new shop takes up the space previously held by Hearts and Hands Home Health Care. The store opened during Milford Memories after the couple completed extensive interior renovations. Inside, they sell shirts and other gift items, most of which are self-printed.
Inside, shoppers can see an array of work the store does, including t-shirts, mugs, and more. In addition to the pre-made prints they sell, Aaron Moorhouse enables customers to come right by the new shop with an idea and work with them to create bespoke products to suit their needs.
“With much of the selection, we try to present many different availabilities of material,” he said. “People can come up with their idea or a design. When you come up with an idea, I have access to hundreds of thousands of designs to search through.”
Customers who stop by the store looking for seasonal products are also in luck. As the leaves change color, so do the displays at Main Street Tees: the transition is celebrated like shirts that read “Lake Life” and shirts that pay homage to fall favorites like pumpkins.
“We’ll change it every holiday and every season,” said Aaron Moorhouse.

Despite the local store, the Moorhouses said they will continue to partner with companies from across the country as they have since it was founded. Customers who find Main Street Tees online can continue to work with the company to place and ship orders across the country.
While the business has gained a foothold in Milford, Aaron Moorhouse is hoping to open more stores in the future, particularly in downtown walkable vacation communities like Grand Haven.
“Milford Memories have solidified that we need to be in a city with constant pedestrian traffic,” he said.
