Minneapolis Observes Tom Sengupta Day

Friday, January 16, 2015 has been declared “Tom Sengupta Day” in Minneapolis.  

Tom Sengupta is the owner of Schneider Drug in the Prospect Park Neighborhood on University Avenue.  He’s run the place for 42 years, but  announced recently that he’s selling the store so he can focus his time and attention on treatment he’ll receive for two kinds of cancer.   Sengupta made his drug store something more than a business.  He considers it a community center and a place where thoughtful people can have meaningful conversations about things that matter.  

Rico Morales visited Schneider Drug and filed this report.
