ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Two downtown Albany restaurants are forced to close their doors.

Al's Super Subs and Two Scoops Gelato on Pine Avenue will close the doors October 30th. The two combined in order to split rent when hard times hit. But the move didn't work.

There simply isn't enough foot traffic downtown to keep the doors open.  

Al's Super Subs owner Al Hamrick blames things on, "Difficult times. It's been very slow here. It was slow when I was on Gillionville. Just not doing it. Not making money to pay the bills."

Signs posted at the restaurant thank all the loyal customers and invite them to attend the "Grand Closing" event on October 30th.
