To be honest, I have expected much more of this shopping mall. It was not as alternative as I hoped it will be. I visited on two separate occasions (2011, 2014) and I did not change my mind about the place. I'd say, if you have the choice, you are better off at Camden for alternative clothes and decor than...

I am sorry to hear that we failed to impress you Steffi, it is always worth revisiting as we do tend to change with new traders and retail offerings being introduced regularly. A new alternative business Dark Light Gothic is opening up a large unit on the 3rd floor very soon. Hopefully you will visit us again next time you... More

I loved Afflecks, I visited it all 3 days I was in Manchester, it was that good. There is something for everyone and everyone working there is so lovely. It's four floors of independent shops, each with everything to offer. I especially loved ginger's where I had probably the best milskshake I'd ever had, all though it was quite expensive,... More

Tony M, Owner of Strawberri Peach at Afflecks, responded to this review

Strawberri Peach trades within Afflecks and offers a bespoke dress making service. At the time the prom dress was collected the dress was tried on by the customer who then left the shop happy with the dress. The customer then decided that she no longer liked the dress for what ever reason that might have been and wanted a refund.... More

Even though this shopping centre is targeted for young alternative people and hipsters, it's a must visit for anyone really. This once abandoned building is now vibrant and packed with unique shops selling unique things. Where else would you find a shop specialized in decorating guitars or a cereal bar? Get in and suck up the atmosphere. Now!

Loved it, really brilliant vintage shops in here, spent a good hour looking through the various shops. Would love to go back- silk scarves for £4 each! What a bargain!

Spread across four floors, Afflecks is filled with boutique stores which specialise in things you won't find in your average shopping mall. You will have a very different shopping experience here than you would in the Arndale Centre. There are vintage clothing stores, fancy dress outlets, wigs and colourful accessories. If you are going out clubbing, this is the place... More
