ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An east Albany business owner says she's doing her part to help revitalize that struggling part of town.

Shannon Robertson opened Dazzling Divas Fashion Jewelry at 1717 East Oglethorpe Blvd. Friday. She says east Albany used to have a lot more stores and businesses.

But she wants people to know there are still plenty of places to shop on the east side.

"When I grew up there was a lot going on, a lot of restaurants, a lot of places to shop. It's real busy on this side of town, but with so much negative going on, and the economy the way it is, most people don't even realize they are businesses over here and there is, there is a lot besides just us," Robertson said.

Robertson says some businesses in east Albany shut down after the Cooper Tire plant closed.

But she says the area is starting to grow again.
