A greetings card chain wants to open a new store in a Derbyshire town.
A planning application has been lodged with Amber Valley Borough Council to put up new signage at a currently vacant shop unit in Heanor’s Market Place.
And planning documents submitted as part of the application show that the business destined to move into the shop is The Card Factory.

The premises, which have a floor space of 83 sq metres, were formerly occupied by bookmaker William Hill.
The building has been empty ever since the business vacated the premises but now it looks like it will be brought back into use selling greetings cards, gift dressings and associated gift and party products.

The Card Factory already has outlets in Belper, Alfreton and Ripley. It also has five outlets in Derby – and is understood to be eyeing space at the College Retail Park in the city, which is currently under construction.
The firm opened its first UK store 20 years ago. Today, the firm has hundreds of stores across the UK.
It is not known how many jobs the retailer will bring to the Heanor store or when it will open.
