The video series was developed to help connect consumers with small bricks and mortar businesses in the region. The project has grown beyond its original scope and now features 30 videos.

“The past year has seen unprecedented challenges that have especially disrupted locally owned small businesses,” says Candy Pollard of the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre. “These short videos help to highlight some of the unique products and services that are available right here in our community.”

“The response to the videos have extremely positive,” says Ms. Pollard. “Each video is slightly different and seeing the owners in their shops creates a very personal connection to these wonderful small businesses.”

The videos were filmed and edited by local videographers Jeremy Baxter and Cameron Forrester. Each video is available to the businesses for use on their own website and social media channels.

The project is funded by the Digital Main Street program and administered by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre. Additional funding has been provided by Cornwall Economic Development.
