Chesterfield Elder Way (Former Co-op Store)

Edler Way

Occupying a pivotal site in the town centre, Chesterfield Elder Way (Former Co-op Store) is a landmark mixed use scheme, breathing life into the town’s famous 1930s, Mock-Tudor former Co-op department store.  The development received planning permission in December 2015 and work started on site in Winter 2017.

The first occupiers announced in February 2016 were The Premier Inn. Jomast developments began the strip of the former Co-operative department store in late 2017, in advance of a March 2018 start for conversion of the building into an 92-bed Premier Inn hotel, 7 family restaurants and a health and fitness centre. This investment will create 60 jobs.

The 92 bed hotel on the first and second floors is to be handed over to Premier Inn in November 2018  ready for final touches and staff training.  It is anticipated that Premier Inn will open in January 2019.

Completion of the ground floor and basement will follow shortly after this.  7 restaurant/ bar units will be created on the ground floor along with 16,000 sqft of gym/D2 space in the basement.  There will be a new courtyard area for outside eating/drinking as well as outside seating along Elder Way.  The ground floor units will all benefit from new shop fronts/entrances

New restaurant, gym and hotel uses will complement each other in order to establish a destination leisure space and eating quarter.

What will Chesterfield Elder Way (Former Co-op store) comprise?

The Elder Way project will comprise of:

  • 7 new ground floor restaurant units, with glazed frontages and external seating ranging between 2,929 sq ft
    and 3,916 sq ft;
