A Stapleford pub could be demolished to make way for a frozen food supermarket.
A planning application has been submitted for the Pavilion pub in Derby Road by Iceland, which recently opened a large store on the Waterside Retail Park in Ilkeston.
The Stapleford store – if given permission – would create an estimated 14 new jobs for the town.
Richard Macrae from Stapleford Community Group welcomed the plan.
“I think this could be a very good thing for Stapleford,” he said.
“Iceland is a big brand and sometimes when you get one big brand others tend to follow.”
