An international pizza delivery chain has confirmed it is moving into Buxton’s former post office.

Takeaway giant Domino’s has announced it has taken over 9, The Quadrant and hopes to create up to 35 jobs.

The Grade II listed premises is currently vacant and was last occupied by careers service Connexions, which closed in January 2013.

A spokesman for Domino’s Pizza Group said: “Domino’s has over 830 stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland and has a goal to increase this number further. We are continually researching and reviewing locations across the country in which to open these new stores. We believe Buxton has great potential for pizza. Opening a store in the town would generate 25 to 35 new jobs for local people.

“Domino’s Pizza takes its role as a responsible neighbour very seriously and our franchisees work very hard to play an active role in the community, not only by delivering great tasting pizza but also by supporting numerous local charities, groups and events.”

The fast food franchise declined to comment on when the takeaway would open.

The building was granted permission for change of use to a hot food takeaway by High Peak Borough Council in June.

According a design and access statement, prepared as part of the application, the opening hours would be 11am to 11pm seven days a week.

On hearing the news, one Twitter user Andy Countach tweeted The Advertiser to say he was “disappointed” as he was “expecting something classier”.
