Businesses set to move into Chesterfield’s new Glassyard development – Destination Chesterfield


Through Josh Marais

One of Chesterfield’s exciting new developments, The Glassyard is starting to welcome businesses on site with a local hairdresser confirmed as one of the businesses set to move into a retail unit there.

A move to The Glassyard allowed MD Hair to take the business to the next level after operating as a sole proprietorship for five years.

The Glass Yard is a 50,000 square foot development comprising a mix of office and retail space as well as an artisan food hall, known as the Batch House – which is due to open in February.

The move to The Glass Yard on Sheffield Road saw MD Hair grow from a single trader to a team of three.

Michelle Dalman, Director of MD Hair, said: “I’m really excited to see more businesses moving into The Glass Yard. I’m already thrilled with the number of new customers we’ve had to walk through the door. Now it’s about building the brand and moving forward from there.

Although she has grown from a sole proprietorship working out of premises on Mansfield Road to a salon with eight chairs, Michelle already has other plans for future growth. She explained, “We are already thinking about how we can grow. We have space here and I would like to add another lounge in the near future.

“We would also like to open a training academy and be able to offer in-house apprenticeships. All our staff have received superior training and this is important to us. We offer luxury high end service here and want customers to have more than just a haircut – it’s an experience.

Mason Thomas Law, a Sheffield-based property law specialist, helped her move into the brand new bespoke premises at The Glass Yard. Mason Thomas Law worked closely with Blue Deer Ltd to enter into the rental agreement on behalf of MD Hair.

Michelle explained, “Mason Thomas Law’s team has been amazing. Knowing nothing about the legal side of things, they really helped me understand everything by breaking everything down in simple terms. Going from sole trader status to this one is a big step forward, so it’s good to have their support.

Cathy Thomas, Principal and Solicitor at Mason Thomas Law, said: “It is great to see the growth of MD Hair and we are delighted to help the business move into its new premises. As well as acquiring new premises, Michelle was growing the business at the same time, so it was important to us to make lease negotiations at The Glass Yard as easy as possible for her. It’s an exciting time for Michelle and her team and we all wish her well and look forward to seeing the business prosper.
