Merchants say downtown is the place to be

July 25, 2006

Albany-- Downtown Albany merchants are hard at work coming up with ways to get people to support the downtown area.  

Tuesday night, the Downtown Merchants Association discussed future events they hope will bring more traffic and business to the area.

The next big event is the Downtown Music Festival which will feature several bands. Merchants say big events are usually well-attended. They hope those events will help discover what downtown has to offer so they'll come back even when nothing special is happening.  

"Gas prices have hurt a lot of people in their pocketbook and their ability to travel and instead of going to Americus or Colquitt or Moultrie even, come to Downtown Albany and see what we have to offer," say Phil Cannon.  

The Downtown Music festival will be the last Saturday in September.
