ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Residents in Putney are excited to see a new grocery store in their community after two nearby stores recently closed.

The owners of Mike's Country Store opened its newest location on US 19 on Friday.

We spoke with the owners and they say the store opened at a good time as Winn-Dixie recently closed the East Albany and Camilla locations. 

Now they say community members have a new place to shop without traveling far.

"We're getting a great response from the customers. They're glad to see us. Some people have been here 30 years and have been waiting somewhere to come locally and shop instead of having to drive so far," said store owner Mike Rogers.

This is the Second Mike's Country store in South Georgia.  The original is on Philema Road in Lee County.
