Downtown Moultrie sees an increase in business

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Downtown Moultrie has been struggling for new business for a while, but now the city is seeing an increase in owners renting space for their companies, which has also attracted more of the community to the area.

Plantation 81 and Company is the newest store set to open up shop downtown.

Owner Jennifer Murphy said this was the best fit for her because, during the holidays, the store will see a good amount of foot traffic.

"I felt that this would be more of a great environment to open up my business in. Especially with my kids, and them going to school here, and knowing the people that we know," said Murphy.

Murphy said the incentives the City of Moultrie offers for the downtown area was something she couldn't pass up.

The grand opening of Plantation 81 and Company is set for Aug. 16.
