Luigi Mingo graduated from the University of Manitoba Faculty of Pharmacy in 1979. He started his pharmacy career as a student working for the Health Sciences Center Pharmacy. He began practicing with the Metro Drugs Chain. Within 9 months he was promoted to Manager of a new location in the Maples. In 1982 Luigi was recruited for a manager position at Canada Safeway. He spent 25 years managing the Safeway Pharmacy in St. Boniface where he developed close professional relationships with his clients in the area. After Safeway he started his association with independent pharmacies; the first being Prana Pharmacy in Transcona, and now back in St. Boniface with Marion Pharmacy. He is looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and developing new ones as he continues to practice pharmacy.
