The Falls Chamber of Commerce recently named Tangen Drug of St. Croix Falls, Wis. as their April Business of the Month.
Tangen Drug has been a family-owned business since 1900. The business first opened in Taylors Falls, and then moved to downtown St. Croix Falls in 1934. Current owners and pharmacists Kevin Nelson and Dwight Ferguson have been business partners since 1988, when Kevin’s parents retired. Phillip Nelson has been working many years as a part-time pharmacist. The newest pharmacist to join the Tangen Drug team is Josh Tempesta, a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Pharmacy. Josh grew up in Cumberland, Wis., so working in a small town, locally-owned pharmacy is a natural fit for him.
Tangen Drug has 16 dedicated employees who provide great service, including LuAnn Uhrhammer, who is celebrating 29 years of working at Tangen on April 1.
