Premier Inn is to be the key occupier of Chesterfield’s former Co-op, the Derbyshire Times can exclusively reveal.
An 89-bedroom hotel and a Beefeater restaurant will open at the Elder Way site next year in a move set to create 60 jobs.
Many people were concerned that the landmark shop would be demolished and the building lost forever.

There are new plans for the Walton Works site off Chatsworth Road and the Derbyshire Times have an excellent article by Michael Broomhead to gather people’s opinions entitled “What do you think of the plans”.
The building has been vacant for many years and is becoming an eyesore as things deteriorate. But the planning application would change all that, as it proposes:
Robinson PLC and Hathersage based developers Blue Deer Ltd have devised the plans and say “…the fresh plans would provide ‘much-needed’ housing for the area.”
There is currently a consultation process in progress via the council before the planning committee makes it’s decision.

A large, medieval-style event is coming to the town centre to commemorate the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Chesterfield.
There will be plenty of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy including an arena and medieval craft area in New Square, along with music, dancing and games and a battle from the Swords of Mercia recreation group.
The highlight of the day will be a re-enactment of Robert de Ferrers being brought out of the ‘Crooked Spire’ and paraded through town on a medieval style cart. He will then be ‘tried’ in New Square and banished from Chesterfield!
The story of the Black & White Buildings of Chesterfield is to get its own exhibition in the Chesterfield Museum.
The exhibition is the result of a long period of research by CADLHS member Janet Murphy who has tirelessly campaigned for these buildings to be recognised as an important part of Chesterfield’s heritage.
The exhibition begins on Monday 18 January and runs to to Saturday 12 March.
