New business growth is encouraging

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany commercial real estate agents say they are seeing an encouraging increase in business development and believe more is to come.

A new Starbucks drive thru will soon break ground at the corner of Dawson Road and Westover Boulevard.

Several other retail stores and restaurants are also planning to open in Albany, seeing it as a hot market.

Where they are probably maxed out in Atlanta. Some of the restaurants and retailers are not here. And Albany, being the hub of Southwest Georgia, this would be the good place to look," said Mary Carter, Commercial Real Estate Agent.

Carter said she expects several more businesses to announce plans to open in Northwest Albany and Lee County in the next few weeks.
