Retail growth is a big focus for the Albertville Commercial Developement Authority, and they have a new plan to help in the process. Economic Development Director Jerry Cofield told the Sand Mountain Reporter, the proposal is to foster a retail incubator in the downtown area. That incubator would have under its umbrella a number of different businesses that will come under one roof and work under one business license. One possible location for the shared-business location, is the former candy shop downtown at 118 East Main. The goal is to let business help each other grow, and eventually move out on their own.
