ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Good economic news for downtown Albany. ADICA officials announced Wednesday that construction will soon begin on a new convenience store.

Groundbreaking could take place as early as the end of the week on a Homerun Foods.

The million dollar project will be built at Oglethorpe Crossing across from the Albany Transit Station.

Downtown City Manager Aaron Blair says it's a prime location and will benefit that part of town.

"It's been a while since we've had a development of this magnitude coming to downtown. It's something that we're going to continue to build upon and move on with," Blair said.

ADICA owns the property.

The project was delayed because of a sewage line problem, but that issue has been resolved.
