It is packed full of amazing little shops - it sells anything and everything from clothes & shoes, sweets, small cafe, beads, key rings, and there's even a tattoo place and a place to get henna done! There are several floors and all of them... More

Ive been looking for this type of store all my life lol. From goth & punk apparel to all-things fudge store, piercings and tattoos to a henna/body art place, tobacco & beads store. Bought myself a short skirt, cyberpunk goggles, a fuzzy hat & a bunch of silver rings and earrings. Wonderful!

Visited this location before and found its collection of sellers amazing. If you want an Anglo Saxon style iPod then chances are someone will be selling it here. I went to look at the jewel shop on Floor 3 and my wife wanted a skirt for a fancy dress theme. (Sad Face) What we didn't know is that floor 3... More

Thanks for the review Keith, as independent traders it is only the more established businesses that employ staff that can commit to trading a seven day week and it is for this reason that part of the 2nd floor and all of the 3rd are closed on Sunday's. There are toilet facilities situated on the 1st floor - I am... More

Full of loads of alternative to vintage to plain funny clothes shops and more jewellery, piercings and stuff than you can shake two sticks at. Also check out the cereal cafe on the 2nd floor they have everything in there including edible chocolate bowls and that ain't no typo my friend. Good food and you just have to go and... More

Follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and visit this curious collection of couture & collectables. Afflecks has been going for around 20 years (or so it seems) and deserves the title of the best alternative department store. Pop in. Have a browse and support local independent retailers

If you are looking for vintage or alternative fashion this is the place to go. It's full of loads of great independent shops selling items you will never find on the high street. If that's your thing then you really must come and explore.

Affleck's is a great place for all the family it has a wide variety of alternative shops as well as American candy store and retro gaming store. If you are the type of person to like any of these then this place is for you. I have always had a keen interest in piercings tattoos and everything alternative.

This was our First time in Manchester and although I had read other reviews, I was surprised when my wife and I visited. We spent a good while meandering through the floors, never quite knowing where we were and what the next stall would offer. There is a wide selection of pre-owned clothing as well as new, jewellery a plenty,... More
