TRAVEL agents in Matlock are both set to survive, despite plans to shut hundreds around the country.
Thomas Cook announced annual losses of £398 million this week, and said up to 200 shops will be closed with the loss of 1,000 jobs over the next two years, as a result.
However, both the Thomas Cook shop on Causeway Lane and the Co-op Travel on Crown Square have not been earmarked for closure.
The group, which sells more than 22 million holidays a year in the UK, delayed their results last month as they revealed they had gone back to its lenders to ask for an additional £100 million lifeline.
Their shares slumped 75 per cent in one day amid fears for their survival but the 170-year-old company claim they are now on a sound financial footing.
