ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Signs are popping up around the Albany area, getting people excited about new businesses coming.
A sign was spotted next to Buffalo Wild Wings in Albany showing that an Aldi will open. That’s off of Nottingham and Ledo Road.
If you’re not familiar, it’s a discount produce and grocery store.
WALB News 10 also spotted a sign next to the Hog-N-Bones in Leesburg.
It shows that a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is planning to open there, off of Highway 82.
It’s a restaurant chain that serves Tex-Mex food.
WALB spoke to members of the community on their thoughts on the new businesses and people seem to be excited for the new Aldi on Nottingham and Ledo Road as well as the Fuzzy Taco.
“A new business in town is always good. It brings in more customers and more opportunities for jobs and things like that. Just better for the economy,” said Albany electrician, Travis Wagner.
“I’m excited that we have new developments and business coming to the Albany, Georgia area. I would like it to be more spread out throughout Albany so that it could be on the south side of Albany. The east side and the north and west,” said LPN, Devon Knighton.
Knighton is a healthcare worker and she believes the new additions to town will prompt more visitors to relocate.
“More businesses and more people to the area. I am a nurse and when the nurses come here, they come to work and they get the money and they go, Instead, more businesses will bring more people opportunity,” said Knighton.
Wagner feels this change will benefit the younger generation
“It’s good for the economy because it brings in more jobs especially for younger people to work it gives them more opportunities,” said Wagner.
Knighton believes the Good Life City has a lot to give.
“Because Albany is beautiful, the ones that really know the beauty and history of Albany, the good history of Albany,” said Knighton.
Albany residents also said they feel new businesses will attract even more businesses to the area.
WALB is working to find out when these openings could happen.
