DANVILLE -- At least four new businesses will help fill up more than a dozen vacancies on Mill Street in downtown Danville. A wedding shop and a new tattoo parlor have already opened on Danville's main street. A photography shop is scheduled to open in June and a brew pub should be coming this fall. The brew pub is planned next to Impressions Photographic Studio and Gallery at 288 Mill St. The pub will occupy space where Playa Cancun, which closed due to personal health reasons, had been. Renovations should start soon on the building since micro brew tanks need to be installed. Damien Malfara of Bloomsburg plans to add a bar and to use the upstairs, downstairs and back patio for his business. "He has been working on this at least five years and has won several awards for his home brewing. He has a lot of great plans for brew fests on the patio," said Cheryl Wenzel, owner of the buildings housing Impressions and the brew pub site at 282 Mill St. Malfara is also in the process of obtaining a brewer's license.
I've been speaking with Damien, so stay tuned for additional details to follow....
