Chesterfield Discussion / Our chesterfield is one of the UK's Top!
« on: November 26, 2016, 07:06:58 PM »
Heaven help the rest of the country if this is true!


Chesterfield is one of the top shopping hotspots in the country - according to a leading business magazine’s retail ranking. Property Week has revealed the top 100 retail locations in the UK with Chesterfield appearing at number 26 ahead of major cities such as Birmingham and Leeds and just behind Manchester at 25. This is the first year that Chesterfield has featured in the industry-significant report. The Hot 100 UK Retail Locations ranking was compiled by location experts CACI and focussed on areas that have potential for investors. Birmingham was listed at 27, Leeds came in at number 45 and Sheffield number 98. Peter Swallow, chair of Destination Chesterfield, said: “Already there is £1bn worth of investment happening in the borough and major projects such as Peak Resort, Chesterfield Waterside and Markham Vale. Chesterfield’s ranking as a top retail hot spot will bring the town further prominence and hopefully increase our retail offering to residents and visitors.” The research took into account factors including headroom for future investment, residential catchment size, population growth, competition and catchment demographic. The ranking also considered how population is projected to increase or fall over the next ten years.

Nope - I may have to come in to town for some new footwear though now that my work boots have become decidedly unwaterproof :-[

I reckon shoe shops are a bit sparse in town these days - good luck with it  :)

Will anyone be racing into Chesterfield tomorrow for the Black Friday Sales?

Or, do you keep away and think it a 'con' ?
I do!!

Appears they've raised the money to see this month out and hopeful of a deal going forward. There is something there to be profitable if its run correctly...seems there has been some bad decisions in recent years and the club has been chucking money away that hopefully can be addressed.

We saw the dark days of Darren Brown and came out the other side and it wont be easy to sort the mess off the pitch and be good on it so there may be some tough watching ahead but there will be a club come the other side of all this of that i'm sure.

It's good they have a months reprieve -  gives them a bit of time to sort it out ( hopefully )
Bad decisions are never good for anyone but sadly they happen and then the pieces have to be picked up.

Now sadly Football is in the news with people coming forward who have been abused by coaches- ( not Chesterfield ). Why is it people show 'shock horror' when this is disclosed.
It's well known that these undesirables will move into jobs where they can access and young people.  :(

I don't think I agree with this at all.
It's not right and - weird.

I'm sad for the girl and others but really - is this right?
Accepting death is never easy but we all have to come to it eventually.

Would I want to have this done and wake up in goodness knows how long to find I have no relatives, friends or any semblance of the life I knew - if I could actually remember it.

Who's to say that we can be preserved for years without some bodily changes.
 
I don't think scientists should dabble in this way!!!

Not surprising he's had enough though is it?

I know bransoj is very hopeful that this can be done ( maybe it can ?? ) but it's a lot of money for anyone to raise and who will want to pump that amount into a football club such as Chesterfield - it might have a posh new stadium but that's no use if there is a football club which is losing money!

Is this right?

Anyone got £9m to buy our club? Chesterfield board open to outside investment

Has anyone heard how the meeting went?
D.T. not always the most reliable place for information - would they really need £9million??

General Discussion / Supermarkets are crafty

For months now I have been buying baguette's from tesco - four for a pound and they were lovely and good value.

A few weeks ago I picked some up to find they had reduced in length - still the same price though.

Do they think customers won't have noticed - they get up to all sorts of tricks don't they!

Not into Football fly, but reading that report it sounds as if he's put a lot of money into the club and it's not enough to sustain it?
Others who have put money in are wanting theirs back to which he doesn't agree?

Is he thinking - as long as I keep paying into the club others are happy ?

It does sound as if Chesterfield are onto a slippy slope now doesn't it.

By the way - is Dave Allen the owner of Twiggs in Matlock?
