I worked here for over a year and generally the customers and other staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. You can always find something and it's a legendary place, it's been a huge part of Manchester alternative scene for over 25 years!

This was the highlight of our family weekend break to manchester! My teenage son who lives his clothes was particularly excited when he managed to find a hoodie that had been created by a local designer

Thanks for the great review Gavin, its great to know that you and your family enjoyed your visit & that your son is wearing 'a bit of Manchester' back in Whitstable.
It's great and very much appreciated that people support and recognise independent labels, your son clearly has good taste.

Hopefully we will see you again next time you visit Manchester.

“Greatest place in Manchester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

I spend far too much of my time in this place but it's just so fantastic... Several floors of alternative and vintage fashion, accessories, and well everything else you could wish for. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and will help you with anything you need. There's a guy that does some amazing art work too. would highly recommend giving Afflecks a visit as i recommend it to all my friends visiting the city and they all love it as much as i do.

“Vintage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Lots of vintage.... well, everything! Several floors of the stuff. Not my taste, but I'm sure if this is what you like, you'll find what you're looking for. Especially clothes - this place has tons of good stuff! Jackets, boots and T-shorts galore!
