Michelle's Pharmacy + Fight the Fight = Greater Good!

    Visit any Michelle's Pharmacy location on a Friday, and you'll find all of their employees wearing matching t-shirts.  This is a policy that owners Michelle and Wally Dyer implemented long ago as a way to allow employees to have "casual Fridays" while still maintaining a team oriented atmosphere within their businesses.   Normally they just wear standard t-shirts with the business logo on them.  However, a few months ago several employees expressed interest in teaming up with Fight the Fight for new Friday t-shirts.  Michelle and Wally were immediately on board.   Together, we designed their new Friday t-shirts (below)...
