Premier Inn announced as key occupier of former Co-op
Premier Inn is to be the key occupier of Chesterfield's former Co-op, the Derbyshire Times reported on 29 February.
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.
Last year, Chesterfield Borough Council conditionally approved a planning application to convert the former Co-op building into a £20million hotel and leisure hub.
The application includes a budget hotel on the upper floor, six family restaurants on the ground floor and a health and fitness area in the basement.
Nicholas Johnston, acquisitions manager for Premier Inn, said: We are delighted to be taking an 89-bedroom hotel and Beefeater restaurant as part of the forthcoming Elder Way development in Chesterfield.
Chesterfield is an excellent location and, as well as attracting new visitors to the area, the new hotel will deliver fresh investment and create 60 new jobs for the local area. We look forward to opening our doors to customers in 2017.
