Former downtown business owner set to reopen

February 7, 2007

Albany -- One downtown store owner who left the area because of a lack of business is preparing to reopen in an area with more traffic.

Amelia's Market recently closed its Broad Avenue location. Now all the art, antiques, and gifts from about 50 local artisans and retailers are located on Ledo Road.

Owner Amy Wiard says she tried out the downtown location for a year, but business just wasn't as good as she hoped.

"I'm hoping business will be 100 times more that what we've been doing. Also I'm hoping this new location will bring more people into the store who want to rent space with those different type of items that Amelia's Market is known for," said owner Amy Wiard.

The store expanded to a 9,000 square foot building and will include a coffee shop and café. Amelia's Market should reopen Monday, February 12, 2007.
