Albany--  Another downtown Albany business will soon close it's doors.

After two years on Jackson Street, Custom Interiors has decided to close and consolidate with their Leesburg location. Business owners say instead of being successful, they've continually lost money over the last two years.

Daphine McKenzie says the city and county assured them they would receive support with revitalization of downtown but so far they haven't seen it. They were further discouraged that the county hasn't fulfilled the Riverquarium's request for funding and believe that isn't a good sign for downtown.

The store plans to vacate the downtown location by September 1st.
