Former Ogema Realty building demolished

Downtown Grand Marais is seeing some changes again. The little building wedged between Java Moose coffee shop and the Harbor Inn motel, the former Ogema Realty building, is being demolished.

WTIP checked in with the building’s owner, David Berner, of Tampa, Florida, about the building and his plans once the demolition is complete.

Here’s WTIP’s Rhonda Silence with that interview.
