Whitey's bar and restaurant is set to re-open its doors next month. Right now, the new owners are doing a complete remodel of the famous East Grand Forks bar that closed back in February.

The restaurant went back into the hand of the former owners and sold this May at an auction.

Tim Bjerk and his wife Christi were the highest bidders. The couple are from Roseau where they own Gene's Bar and Grill. They aren't strangers to the restaurant business.

They spent the last few weeks doing a complete remodel. The Bjerks are removing almost everything from the bar and starting with everything new.

If you're looking buy to some of the Whitey's memorabilia that is being removed, including everything from booths to beer signs, there is a public auction Tuesday afternoon beginning 2 p.m.
