Albany Woodworks Storefront ‘The Alternative’ Opens in 1980
Furniture Store Front for Albany Woodworks.
An empty storefront in old downtown Hammond, Louisiana became the location for our new concept of a showroom for Albany Woodworks. The store front sold cypress adirondack chairs, swings, lattice work, gazebos and other home accent gifts. The store was open for a year before Albany Woodworks began working on opening an office and showroom in Albany, LA.
Some of Albany Woodworks first customers included Chef Justin Wilson, a well-known Louisiana chef and comedian, and Ms. Loretta Lynn, a multiple gold album American country music singer-songwriter whose work spans almost 60 years. Ms. Loretta Lynn ordered Adirondack chairs for the porch at her ranch home in Hurricane Mills, TN. Chef Wilson ordered Adirondack chairs and a swing to give away as gifts. He went on to purchase many more chairs from Albany Woodworks to give as promotional gifts to his customers.
