Contracts for site work (Peters General Contracting) and building renovations (Kingdom Construction) for the renovation of the Albany General Store property were awarded in August 2020 and work has begun. Both contractors have long time connections to Albany. Follow along here as we add photos by Sonya Kittredge / ACT Board member, of the work journey to an early 2021 store opening.

Prosperity for Albany, VT
Albany Community Trust, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Vermont domestic non-profit corporation and is a community-based, grass-roots organization formed to support and motivate the growth and prosperity of Albany, VT. The Trust was formed in early 2018 and chose the revival of the Albany General Store as our first project.
Funds for the store renovation have come from grants and donations from individuals and corporations. Visit our donations page to learn more about how to financially support this important town feature.
The store, until five years ago, was a community gathering place offering food staples, gas, and a place to meet and make new friends. The Albany Community Trust believes it is vital to “restore the store” as a basic building block for the prosperity of our town and life here. The store, expected to open in 2020, will offer grocery staples, deli products and have seating for eating in.
