Rushden Lakes Opens For Business

Thu, August 03, 2017

The much anticipated opening of the HPW Architecture designed Rushden Lakes development took place on Friday 28th July with the first of the customers arriving at 2.00 am! 

Customers waited eagerly at the stores’ doors to take advantage of the fantastic opening day offers and bargains.  The queues were entertained by a variety of live performances including a 'flash mob' style dance routine by the staff of one of the stores. 

The new foot and cycle bridge was also used extensively and people were excited to be crossing it for the first time in order to get to the site.

Our Managing Director, Gary Wilburn, spent the opening day talking to visitors and retailers to get their thoughts on Rushden Lakes; “Everyone I spoke to was genuinely delighted that the scheme was open and hugely impressed with what they saw and experienced during the day. Watching those who had taken advantage of the shopping offers gravitating to the edge of the lake to take pictures of the scenery was great to see."

Both Rushden Lakes’ landlord The Crown Estate, and the on site management team, were delighted with the footfall numbers and visitor reactions which continued throughout the weekend.
