A reprieve and a new owner for the feminist bookstore in Minneapolis; Ruta Skujins, a St. Paul native with 33 years in the corporate world who had always dreamed of owning a bookstore, now does. She's drawing down her IRA to invest in the 38-year-old business, which has a national reputation as a feminist icon and as a survivor. "That's how much I believe the store can be turned around and returned to its glory days," said Skujins, 56, who now lives in Minneapolis.
