Pine River DMV becomes Pine River's titling business


Griep’s Jewelry’s half century of business in Pine River has come to an end, and is replaced with Pine River DMV.

Mike Griep and his wife, Carol, owners since 1980, had taken over the business Mike’s father, Erwin, started in 1957. Erwin began selling license plates in 1959 when he was appointed deputy registrar. This made Griep’s Jewelry a well-known Pine River business.
