ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new distribution center should bring dozens of more jobs to Albany by the end of the year.

Webstaurant Store has already hired 50 people. It plans to hire more than 100 more once building renovations are complete.

The company is an e-commerce brand that sells restaurant equipment supplies. It will open at the old Bridgestone-Firestone facility in the Parkway Industrial Park.

Those jobs could help lower southwest Georgia's unemployment rate even more.

New numbers from the Georgia Department of Labor show the rate for the region dropped to 5.9 percent in April. It was 6.4 percent in March.
