Businesses in Deer River

One of the interesting things about coming in to Deer River from the east is there are three banks. Then you go through town and see the empty buildings uptown. Seeing the Shelly’s building – won’t that make a mini mall? I can see three businesses going in there. I don’t know who owns it. Can’t the village council and Chamber of Commerce do something about any of the businesses? I’m glad that Dollar General is coming to town. Also the U-Save expansion and Cenex in their new building. We have some businesses that are second and third generations, keeping the town growing. We have many citizens in town. Please send comments.
