Sweet Cars opens in Pine River, continues auto dealership tradition


It has been four years since Pine River has had a car dealership on the corner of Barclay Avenue and Highway 371. That was when the Pine Motors dealership closed its doors in Pine River and a tradition spanning generations came to a close.

On Jan. 2, the old lot gained new life.

It was then that Tim Sweet of Brainerd began selling used cars from this lot. The lot was leased from Sweet’s friend, Randy Barnum, of Napa Auto.
