Description


Warehouse Economy Outlet, (W.E.O.), Where Economy Originates, was a discount, warehouse-style supermarket concept that was developed in the 1970s by The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P), and is credited with being among the first of its kind in the industry. The first W.E.O. opened in Pennsauken, New Jersey in 1971, and quickly became a successful, profitable venture. W.E.O. featured top-selling grocery items in their original wholesale bulk packaging at greatly reduced prices in a no frills store design. In 1972 A&P expanded this format to 1,500 existing A&P stores; however, the expansion ultimately failed as many of their older stores, built prior to the ’50s, were not large enough to stock the mass quantities of discounted groceries that the warehouse format called for. One of the popular taglines used in advertising and worn by employees was “I won’t stop trying till you say Weeeeeo!” but by 1975, A&P abandoned the concept, so I guess they did kinda stop.

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
