STAG member celebrates 40 years in business

STAG retailer and former Swindon Town footballer, Don Rogers, is celebrating 40 years of success off the pitch following his successful career on it. Rogers, a STAG member for nearly a decade and a hero of Swindon’s 1969 League Cup final victory over Arsenal, has had his shop, Don Rogers Sports, in the same road in Swindon since 1968.

He says: “We joined STAG nearly 10 years ago and it has been one of the best business decisions we have made. We get access to leading brands at unbeatable discounts. Being part of STAG means we can compete with the high street chains and offer our customers what they want and more. It allows us to focus on good service and that is our strength as customers come back year after year.”

“To be in business for 40 years is certainly an accomplishment in itself, but sports retail can be tough and competition fierce, so you have to congratulate Don for this remarkable achievement,” says Ward Robertson, managing director of STAG.

A regular at the annual STAG Show, Rogers is looking forward to the new venue for this year’s show. Previously the show has been staged at Heythrop Park, but the 2008 event will be held for the first time at the brand new Cotswold Water Park Four Pillars Hotel.

Says Rogers: “The STAG Show in November is a must. I never miss it, there’s always excellent business deals to be done during those two days. I’m really looking forward to this year’s show at the new venue and as it’s just around the corner from me I could probably cycle there this year.”
