ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Another Albany Business is relocating to downtown.

Downtown Dawsyn Boutique has announced they will be joining Flint Riverquarium and Pretoria Fields on Pine Avenue.

Downtown Dawsyn Boutique is the fifth locally owned business in Albany to relocate to downtown in an effort to revitalize the downtown area.

With the city of Albany Mayor, Dorothy Hubbard said this was an effort she has been making since the beginning of her term in office, that she wants to rebuild the downtown area of Albany.

Mayor Hubbard said that downtown is the natural hub for any major city, and it's where she believes people will begin to start investing in Albany if we continue to make an effort to rebuild it. 

She also said that with all the chain stores leaving Albany like Toys-R-US and K-Mart, along with others, that downtown will allow jobs to open and continue to bring revenue to the city.

"Certainly excited for what is happening in our downtown," said Albany Mayor Dorothy Hubbard. "We think that our downtown revitalization is going to offer a different kind of experience for Albany, a different kind of experience for people who are visiting us."

Mayor Hubbard confirms that they do have some things in the works, with other businesses filling those empty spaces downtown. But she can not release any information yet on which businesses those are.
