Endicott Street turnaround: Busy Danvers shopping district gets new life | Local News

DANVERS — Change is coming to Endicott Street.

Several businesses have opened or are planning to set up shop in the busy Danvers shopping district, and, according to Town Manager Steve Bartha, the town is looking to do whatever it can to ensure the corridor thrives.

“I can’t say what would be ideal there, but I know (the town planning and economic development office) is trying to answer that question and figure out what is the vision for the town,” Bartha said.

The Friendly Toast, a popular brunch spot with locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, recently opened its sixth location at the Liberty Tree Mall.

The controversial decision to award points for last weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix washout after two safety car laps drew inevitable comparisons with Formula 1’s infamous visit to Spa in 1985.

As in 2021, the cars did at least take to the track, and a qualifying session took place. But whereas F1 last weekend tied itself in knots and pressed on in the forlorn hope of getting some running in before taking the unpopular decision to call a result – prompting Lewis Hamilton to call for fans to get their money back – in 1985, the decision was taken to abandon the race on the Saturday evening.

The reason for the postponement was a spectacular own goal by the Spa management. The track was resurfaced at such a late stage that once the cars ran it quickly broke up, making a race untenable.

It remains unclear whether F1 will return to
