Still working at 93 years old


Most of us, when we hit 67, it’s time for retirement. But not Leonard Schmautz who just turned 93.

He has been working at the Plaza Beer Depot in Bismarck for 34 years. And says he’ll keep going as long as the owners allow. He’s considered their most loyal employee. Leonard could easily sit back and enjoy the rest of his life – but it’s the customers that are the reason he comes into work every day.

“Very nice people that come in here, and that keeps me going. I get up in the morning and get dressed and go to work. That’s it,” said Schmautz.

The Beer Depot is having a sale to celebrate Leonard’s birthday. So, stop in tonight for a small discount off one item of choice.
