There are so many great reasons to support local businesses. And while you’re at it, enter the Authentically Albany Rewards Giveaway. There might just be a $100 reward for you!
You can support Albany business owners by shopping in their stores, eating in their restaurants and using their services. Show us who you shop with!
Short on cash? You can help in other ways without spending money.
If you’re on social media, like their Facebook and Instagram pages, share their posts. Comment on things you like.
When you find something you like at a specific store or a favorite new menu item or beverage – tell someone about it! Word of mouth goes a long way!
Enter our #AuthenticallyAlbany Rewards Giveaway. Take a photo of your favorite store, purchase or proprietor in Albany. Tell us about it and tag us on Facebook or Instagram with #AuthenticallyAlbany. You will be entered to win a $100 gift card from one of our Albany businesses. Not on social media? No problem, send us an email photo or drop it by the AVA office with your comments and we will enter for you.

Each week, we’ll pick a winner at random to win a $100 gift card courtesy of The Albany Visitors Association. You can enter in any or all of the ways above and there’s a new chance to win every week.
Many local shops are still offering online options and can ship directly to your house, so you can still support local businesses with the convenience and safety of online shopping.
