The sale of the historic Whitey's Cafe in East Grand Forks is expected to be final by the end of the month.

Greg Stennes, who is a partner in the group selling Whitey's, says the deal is expected to be done on June 30th, which is the sale's closing date.

Tim Bjerk, who owns Gene's Bar and Grill in Roseau, MN, was the sole bidder at the auction last month when the bar was sold for $650,000.

Whitey's has been closed since February and there's no word on when it will reopen.
