Local to Rejus head office, Lakeside Shopping Centre has celebrated its 25th birthday, marking the occasion with a nostalgic 90s themed event. The centre, which boats over 40 retail outlet stores, has been in operation since 1996.
A popular spot for us here at Rejus, Lakeside hosts a mixture of stores which offer of a large variety of amenities. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Lakeside and some of the businesses before, and Rejus would like to congratulate the entire shopping centre for reaching this fantastic milestone.
The site on White Rose Way was originally known as “The Yorkshire Outlet” before rebranding as “Lakeside Village” in 2003. The centre has gone from strength to strength ever since, currently hosting a variety of big chain stores, including Next, B&M, Greggs, and M&S.
The past 25 years has seen a lot of changes for the Outlet, including the above-mentioned rebranding, and the location has seen a lot of stores come and go. During this time there has remained some longstanding stores that have been there since the beginning, such as Clarks, and members of staff that have served there for over 20 years. We see this as a testament to the appeal of Lakeside Village and are looking forward to seeing many more years from the outlet.

The birthday weekend celebrations included 90s style roller discos and a Spice Girls tribute act, a nostalgic celebration of the opening year of the Outlet, and a great way of sharing the celebrations with the local community.
Di Rogers, centre manager at Lakeside Village, has said:
“Lakeside Village is proud of its place in the heart of the community, we built up an incredibly loyal customer base here in Doncaster, with people travelling from right across South Yorkshire to shop with us and from day one we’ve supported local and national charities and continue to do so.”
