      New jobs in South Georgia

      Tracy Hester with City Planning and Building says six new businesses are coming to Albany Georgia, including Kauffman Tire.

      Although Kauffman Tire opened up eight weeks ago in Albany, they plan to start up three new stores in Thomasville, Cordele, and Valdosta.

      Regional Manager of Kauffman Tire Charles Curlee says there are about eight to twelve jobs available depending on the store. This will total about 40 jobs coming to Southwest Georgia, including the store in Albany.

      Curlee adds they plan to start construction on the Cordele store next week, and depending on the weather, project it to open in 140 to 160 days.

      Ashley Furniture, Dollar General, and Home Foods are a few other businesses that will be coming to Albany as well, which means more jobs.
