Local group working to reopen the Albany Store

in Albany/News

ALBANY — A local group called the Albany Community Trust (ACT), is raising funds to purchase and reestablish the Albany Store on Route 14 in Albany Village.

The non-profit organization, whose mission is “to positively impact the growth and prosperity of Albany,” believes reopening the store will increase the vibrancy and create a stronger community in the town.

The purchase of the adjacent lot will provide additional parking and an outdoor space for the store.

ACT will be hosting an informational meeting on Thursday, April 19, at 5:30 p.m. at the Albany Town Hall, to share its goals, progress, and vision for the Albany Store’s future, to address the community’s questions, and to hear ideas.

The group says it welcomes all community members to attend.
