Albany- Gordon Hall is still serving Shabazz punch after 16 years of business in east Albany.
But even his fried fish and bacon burgers may not be all it takes to keep people shopping on this side of the city.
"East Albany is in need of some things to keep people from having to drive so far for services," Hall said.
That's a problem he thinks should be wiped out of this community. And he's not alone. People packed the eastside community center Monday night on Oglethorpe Boulevard to hear about a telephone market study.
About 400 people within a 30 mile radius of east Albany will be randomly selected for the market study. The City and Chamber of Commerce are splitting the cost of the almost $10,000 phone study.
"I believe more growth can occur in east Albany," said Tim Martin, CEO and president of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce. "The transportation is in place, they infrastructure is in place."
The University of Georgia was hired to do the study and find out what kind of shopping and dining that's wanted here and if there are enough people and money to support new businesses.
"And use that information to try and attract them to come into our community," Martin said.
A community that doesn't want to drive to Northwest Albany to get a good price on a mop.
"These people over here need to be able to spend their money in their neighborhood or their area of the city without having to drive to another part of the city," Hall said.
A part of the city that gave Gordon a reason to stay here serving food for so many years.
