ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year is a women's clothing store.
The Royal Collection beat out six finalists.
Chamber officials held a "Cinco de Mayo" themed ceremony at Chehaw Park Thursday night to highlight small businesses and thank them for what they do for the community.
"We look at how involved are our small businesses with the community at large because it's really a relationship between our consumers and our small businesses," said Barbara Rivera-Holmes, Albany Area Chamber of Commerce Interim President. "So we look at community involvement, support of community programs. We look at how they operate as a business."
First runner-up for the award was Southern Commercial Materials.
Cycle World was second runner-up.
