Affinity Lancashire is the new name for 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.
