Bennetts is set to reopen in Derby as a pop-up store

The “world’s oldest department store” Bennetts, which closed in 2019, is set to reopen in Derby as a pop-up store.

The 285-year-old department store was bought out of administration by local businessman Paul Hurst.

Hurst said he planned to reopen a series of smaller stores, with the first one launching later.

The shop, branded as Seasons by Bennetts, is due to open on Sadler Gate, in Derby’s historical cathedral quarter, close to its former Irongate home.

Hurst said he hoped the Irongate store would reopen but the level of works required for the listed building had slowed progress.

Bennetts had been operated by French Sole owner London Sole since April 2019, when it was first bought out of administration.

The heritage department store fell into the hands of administrators just four months after London Sole failed to meet a number of payments.
