Video options: 

If you prefer the Q&A method, we propose a recorded interview by Zoom.  Ideally, you will be inside your business and can use your phone or laptop to show the business behind you or you could stay outside the frame and just show products while you respond to questions (or both).

If you prefer to tape yourself, you could use your own technology to record a short video or a number of clips and submit to the Town.

We will happily work with you for the best fit!

If you are interested in being a featured Petawawa business simply communicate with and we will make the necessary arrangments with you.
