25 Years of Affinity Lancashire!

12 September 2020 marked 25 years since Freeport Fleetwood first opened its doors. It’s been Affinity Lancashire since 2018 but loads of people (us included!) still call it Freeport Fleetwood! Do you?

How many years have you been shopping there? Do you remember the old Freeport Fleetwood site with the American Diner and the fishing boat? We’ve explored the history of the site, right back to the opening of the original fish dock! Take a look back at Affinity Lancashire through the years here

Previously Freeport Fleetwood

Freeport Fleetwood shopping centre announced its new name, Affinity Lancashire, and its eye-catching logo with a party atmosphere. It was the Spring Bank Holiday weekend in 2018 when the name change happened – with visitors enjoying all sorts of fun. The event was packed with family-focused activities and shoppers bagged their bargains through exclusive discounts as part of the re-launch extravaganza.

The Affinity Outlets unites the formerly ‘Freeport Fleetwood’, ‘Freeport Talke’ and ‘Atlantic Village’ outlet centres under a single band. Global Mutual Limited, the international property investment and management company, acquired the three schemes in 2017.
