Michelle Wipf has been Front Store Manager for Souris Pharmasave since opening day in the Fall of 2019, and just recently Wipf and acting Pharmacy Manager, Matt Williams, were welcomed to the ownership team with Lorie and Duane Davison.
Michelle and her family moved from Brandon to Souris in the summer of 2019.
"Our oldest son always called Souris 'home', and we loved the community and wanted to move back, so we did!" shares Wipf. "The rest is history, and we just couldn't imagine living anywhere else!"
Wipf says the transition from Front Store Manager to Co-owner has been amazing. "We feel like there is a lot that we can learn from them still. They've kind of let us take the lead on running the store as it is now. They're fantastic people to learn from."
Pharmacy Manager and now co-owner, Matt Williams, grew up between Hartney and Souris, his wife Jessie grew up in Elgin. The Williams family moved back to their home stomping grounds of Souris in 2020. Williams joined the Pharmasave staff approximately 6 months after the Pharmasave store opened.
Wipf says the opportunities presented to them to partner with the Davison family has been a huge blessing.
"We feel very fortunate for the opportunities that have been presented to us and we intend to continue their vision of excellent customer care and service, and being a part of the community as much as we can, showing what we can do and what we can bring to the community."
