1st Friday Albany


The following Downtown venues will participate in 1st Friday Albany on April 1, 2016 (free and open to the public):

Coliseum Mall


Whether you’re looking to tickle the ivories on our player piano, shop for urban casual wear, or you want a new mobile phone – you’ll find the perfect fit at the Coliseum!

Truman Jewelers


An independent jewelry store located in the heart of Albany, Truman Jewelers has been owned and operated by Paul Truman Crabbe for over 20 years, making it one of the longest owner-operated retailers in Downtown.

As a full line jewelry store, employees have served the local and surrounding communities with high quality products and personalized customer service since day 1, with satisfying our customers’ needs while maintaining their trust remaining our primary goal.

The Enchanted Florist of Albany


One of Louis Bannister's earliest memories as a kid was watching his Mom arrange the bouquets for church and sitting in on flower arranging classes she taught. Inspired by his Mom, today Louis is a florist, not only for the church, but to countless brides, events and cash and carry fans.

His passion for flowers is driven by providing quality flowers the first time, to every client. His space houses a separate place for private consults for event planning as well as a retail component for those clients who need to stop in and pick-up stems.

Steuben Street Market


Steuben Street Market features local produce, meat, dairy and cheese while stocking natural, organic and non-GMO products in an ‘open-air’ environment provides a clean and authentic experience.

The market’s mission? In today’s bustling society, eating healthy is not always easy or convent. Our mission is to provide Downtown Albany residents, workers and the local community with the freshest products while keeping the supply as local as possible.

Smoker's Choice Superstore


Smoker's Choice Cigarette and Tobacco Outlets are growing strong with over 50 retail locations in New York and Pennsylvania. With over a dozen years of excellent service, Smoker's Choice is a leader in tobacco and tobacco products.

In-store you’ll find premium cigars, vaping supplies, and everything you need to roll your own cigarettes.

Rite Aid


More than just a drugstore, Rite Aid prides itself on a personal interest in the health and wellness of customers’ lives. That’s why they deliver the products and services that you need for a healthier, happier life.

Far more than health and wellness products, stop in the Downtown location for a quick snack, to pick up a magazine or card, and be on your way in a jiffy.

Pomegranate Upstate Clothing


The owner of Pomegranate Upstate Clothing noticed that many families were unable to find one place that carried the right clothing and colors that corrections facilities permit. Feeling the community was missing an important piece, the store was opened.

The first store in the area with a catalog designed for inmates in state penitentiaries, the selection was hand-picked to make it easy for you to purchase your loved ones much needed clothing, toiletries, and amenities during this tough time in their lives at an affordable cost.

Metro PCS


Why Metro PCS? You’ll have a nationwide network at your disposal – without the annual contract.

Well, that and great customer service, plans with big savings (and no hidden fees), phones priced for all whether you want the hottest new options or the choices that give you the most bang for your buck, and 4G LTE. Maybe the better question is why not Metro PCS?
