The T-shirts at Acme make people smile. And so do the people who work there. “We’re lucky enough to have a business that is creative, and it’s a fun job—it’s what we live for,” says manager Katlyn Conroy. “We get to be creative, do what we love and we’re all really good friends.”
That environment allows them to come up with crowd-pleasing T-shirt designs, like a recent design commemorating McCollum Hall that reads “R.I.P. McCollum,” after the longtime (long-loved) dorm building was demolished last November.
“We can put anything on a T-shirt,” Conroy says. “We want to create fun, popular garments for people.”
