VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - North Valdosta is gaining some economic growth, as a new shopping plaza prepares to open in the next few months.
City Inspections Manager Rick Mefford said they are very close to finishing a four-spot retail plaza on Bemiss Road and Mary Margaret Drive.
Mefford said that two of the retail stores have already been bought and one will be a tanning salon. He said this gives residents of North Valdosta a place to shop without having to come into town.
"I think someone thought it was a good spot to put because there is not a lot of retail on that end of the county there, so I believe that'll be a good spot they'd like to go to," said Mefford.
Mefford said the plaza should be up and running by this Spring.
