It’s last call for Adrian Franssen, the longtime owner of Scandia Olde Towne Liquor.
After 62 years in the liquor business, Franssen is retiring. Customers and friends are invited to stop by the store from 1-3 p.m. Saturday for a farewell toast.
Franssen, 74, got his start at 13 as a stock boy for Sarrack’s Liquor Store in Maplewood and worked there for almost two decades. He left to manage Star Liquors, then moved on to Capital City Distributing. He bought the Scandia liquor store in 1994.
