For Danville’s River District, business momentum surges | Local Business News
Since the beginning of this year, more than a dozen businesses have either opened or expanded in the River District, and more than half a dozen others are expected to follow in the second part of 2022.
“They keep coming so fast,” said River District Association Executive Director Diana Schwartz.
That, of course, is not a complaint on her part.
“It is amazing how many people have come to realize how business friendly Danville is for small businesses,” she said.
According to figures provided by Schwartz, there are more than 300 businesses with nearly 4,000 employees within a half-mile radius in the River District.
Charles Walker, co-owner at Ma’s Cakes on Main Street downtown, opened the business with his wife, Annette Walker, in late February.
