ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Work is underway on a big empty retail space in Albany to bring in a new business and a spirit of celebration.

Party City will open a store at 2709 Dawson Road, near the Albany Mall this August.  Economic development officials say they're excited to see a company bring in jobs and also fill up the former Steinmart location.

"It's also a big thing for our tax space. Steinmart did a lot of business here so the loss to our tax space was a big blow. So this will be a big help to have a company like this coming into that space," said Ted Clem, the EDC President.

It's not known exactly how many jobs the store will bring to the area. Party City will have a grand opening celebration on August 16th.
