Family Haircuts owner Cathy Allen is excited about the possibility of Caesars Entertainment bringing a casino to Schoolfield.
“I hope it will give Danville a face-lift,” said Allen from her Schoolfield business, located across from Hardee’s on West Main Street, a few blocks from where the casino would be located.
A casino resort could spur more economic development in the area, she believes.
“It’s very exciting to see what businesses it will bring,” Allen said just before long-time customer Russell “Peewee” Moore walked in for a haircut.
Moore, who lives on Westover Drive, thinks a casino would be good for the economy and added that he would probably try it out if one were to open.
“If I like it, I’ll keep coming back,” said Moore, 65.
