What Bert Has To Say About Danville Metro Area

Danville, located in what is referred to as the “southside” part of the state, remains today a depressed center for the tobacco and textile industries. Textile giant Dan River Corporation makes its home there, and the atmosphere is generally business-friendly. However, the current employment and job-prospect figures reflect the poor economic state of the dominant industries.
