What a fantastic place! A collection of weird and wonderful little independent stores ranged across several floors. Clothes, music, jewellery and so much more. A refreshing change from the usual bland high street offerings of over familiar big name stores.Every town should have an Afflecks!

I used to come here as a teenager in the late 80's and LOVED it then. I now bring my teenage daughter who LOVES it now!. There is something for everyone really, and although it's not cheap it is at least helping out independent businesses. After having my money spent on various iron patches, make up, manga, posters, tartan drainpipes... More

It's been years since I last popped in to Afflecks and it has obviously undergone a massive Renaissance. Madchester might be a generation ago but the amazing range of fab stalls of all kinds is really worth a long wander. The quirky recycling shop/3M mini theatre venue, the glorious Cyberdog (ah my lost youth) and the gorgeous Crystal Henge shop... More

Back in the day Afflecks was THE place to come for clothes, music etc. It was a rabbit warren of little shops and is much the same now 20-30 years later. Worth an explore!

Love coming here it's like a second home. The stalls are great and interesting. The stall holders are a mine of info. The 3rd floor is my fave as the vintage clothes rd the corner from the best cafe and unarguably the best milkshakes in manchester where devotees come from as far as crewe come
