ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to the stars of the "Good Life City." The chamber began its "Star Business of the Week" initiative by recognizing Albany Harley Davidson Tuesday morning.

Every week one of their 1200 members will be drawn randomly for the reward. The Star Business will than receive a plaque, a banner and also be recognized in the local media. This initiative gives the Chamber a chance to thank members for their contributions to Albany.

"We are trying to reach out to these businesses in our community that make our community grow and thrive and tell them how important they are to our community," said Albany Chamber of Commerce President, Catherine Glover.

"I think it's outstanding. There are so many different markets that need to be tapped into and being recognized obviously gets your name out there," said Albany Harley Davidson General Manager, Kevin Sewell.

The Albany Chamber of Commerce will recognize a different business every Monday, except on holidays.
