Our dream has always been to open an independently owned pharmacy in our local community that serves our family, friends, and neighbors. We both grew up in small towns and wanted to create a pharmacy that provides large city services but still has a small town feel. We have a strong desire to help people and give back to our community which is what we hope to do through The Pharmacy at St Michaels.
