MIDLANDS Co-operative Society has confirmed that it is planning to close its Fashion & Home business including its Chesterfield department store and warehouse branch.

Chief executive Martyn Cheatle, of Midlands Co-operative, explained that major changes in the retailing sector and the ever increasing growth in online shopping over recent years have created significant and fundamental challenges for the Society’s Fashion & Home business.

The business closure could affect 388 store-based employees across the company although efforts are expected to redeploy staff.
