I always visit Afflecks when I'm in Manchester. It's tradition! I started going when I was 16 and now 30 years later I still visit and my daughter is now 16 and visits regularly too. Friendly vibe, eclectic stalls - it's got everything. You could get lost in there but then you just come across a great stall you've never... More

What an absolute delight of variation of shops/stalls within one building. All under one roof recommended to while away time in the City and to avoid inclement weather outside. Loved the American sweet/drinks shop' quirky clothes and jewellery; the bead shop and so much more.

It's a nice little clothing store with retro articles. The atmosphere is nice, there are cute clothes overall. It may be a little small. There is also a piercing shop on the second floor. It was nice to see that they had their own clothing line special for Manchester.

Tony M, General Manager at Afflecks, responded to this review

Hi Adina, Thanks for the review, I think from your comments that you may have visited on a Sunday when only two floors are open. Afflecks houses over 70 independent stalls across 4 floors selling everything from art to vintage. Hopefully you can return Monday to Saturday when we are fully open. More

The shop is large and with much differents things. It is possible to be drilled and for not very expensive. The staff is very friendly and willing to answer any questions. There is the possibility of buying clothes and finding jewelry for piercing or earrings, bracelets.

The decoration in this store is very original. It is an atypical place where I advise to go inside to see the interior. If you have a rocker style you will find clothes to your taste. The staff is very friendly.

We visited here whilst on a shopping trip and were amazed by this service place! 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
