Albany- Melvin Smith of L and M Grapic Kings is putting finishing touches on the outside of Popcorn in the Park.

It's owned by Peter Studl and will be a concession store where patrons can get ice cream, candy and of course popcorn.  The shop is geared towards kids but will benefit all visitors to downtown.

"This is moreso a children's shop so that's why you see the characters are geared towards children and I just figured it could be good because it would draw more commerce down here," says Smith.

Because of flooding at the Flint River Park, the opening has been pushed back but the new shop should be opening soon.
