Lakeside Village, the shopping outlet in Doncaster, reported one of its best years of trade in 2022, with sales up by 6% compared to the year prior.

The successful year of trading saw sales rise 11% compared to 2019, the most recent comparable pre-pandemic year. By the end of the year, the shopping outlet had been fully let.

The festive period boosted trade, with Santa’s Grotto visited by over 1,000 children, which helped the centre raise £4,300 for the charity Doncaster Mind. In addition, it hosted a successful two-day festive Artisan Fayre.

Di Mellis, Centre Manager at Lakeside Village, commented: “Lakeside Village enjoyed one of our best years to date in 2022 with sales, average spend and the total number of transactions across all our stores all up on recent years which is great to see.

“But not only that we are creating a strong sense of community and inclusivity here at the centre that is really appreciated by our loyal customers both young and old. From the children’s play areas and high-quality accessible facilities to the work we do supporting local charities and initiatives to the expansion of our green recycling hub and hosting all the fairs, events and activities throughout the year, there is a buzz about the place.

“It is also important to recognise the major role we play in the local economy employing more than 500 people at the centre. All our stores and staff play such a huge part in what we have achieved and we are all so excited to build on this in 2023 and go from strength to strength.”
