The Downtown Albany Business Improvement District is collecting community feedback information on how consumers are engaging with businesses within our District. We will use this data to inform our retail and retail-related businesses and restaurants about consumer insights and habits. No individual responses will be shared, but overall data will be shared for these purposes. Please note: when we reference Downtown Albany, we are referring to our District - the area of roughly Eagle Street to Broadway, and Clinton Avenue to just past Madison Avenue on S Pearl Street - and we ask you to keep that in mind as you answer.

All participants have the option to sign up to win one of three Downtown Albany Gift Cards, valid at nearly 40 Downtown businesses, and valued at $100, $75, and $50; the three winners will be chosen at random and contacted following the closure of the survey in May 2021. Thank you in advance for completing this survey; please direct questions to hello@downtownalbany.org.
