“Good shops but terrible piercing”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I was recommended by a friend that if I wanted a piercing that this was the place to go. All the shops seems cool enough, even bought an Halloween costume, but the piercing and tattoo shop was just awful. As soon as I walked in and asked for my piercing, I was took to the back room without a word been spoken to me. Sat down and she cleaned and put the needle straight through me, gave me a piece of paper and then walked away. It's just that it was my first piercing and I told her that, she gave me no response, and just continued. She in no way tried to calm me down or talk through any of the cleaning routines afterwards. Later I had to return because the piercing in my ball fell out and I asked if they could replace it and the same woman scowled at me, took me in the back and replaced it. Again, with no conversation or anything. I felt like I was been looked down upon and that she was being very rude towards me, so for that fact, I will never go back to that piercing shop.

“extraordinary”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for something special/weird that's the right place. There're many handmade stuffs, not only clothes but all kinds of accessories. There is also a shop that sells the things and equipment for diy. Really love that shop. It's really interesting to walk around Afflecks, remember the way and don't get lost =b

“Interesting place”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Interesting store, with curious and unique products. Different mini stores selling thei runique clothing. Prices vary largely.
However, the must see are really the outside area of the big store with amazing mosaics

“Cool place”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Have been here before. A really good place if your looking for something from the past or a vision of new designer's

It's all small shops and has to be a must to visit. Can't go wrong. A good way to spend an hour.

“Morning out in the Manchester rain”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a couple of hours to kill and our relatives suggested Afflecks. We had a great time exploring all the nooks & crannies....our teenage daughter enjoyed looking at all the different designs. A good place to visit if you have an hour or two.
