As one of the UK’s biggest cities and counties, Manchester has a rich and diverse community and an extraordinary selection of important shopping areas. Whilst many multiple chain stores are attracted to the modern shopping centres, Manchester also has a great selection of smaller independent shops selling many niche products.
Manchester craft shops are a great example of this specialist type of business. Whether customers are looking for children’s arts & crafts, cake decorating equipment, dressmaking materials or candle making sets, they can find it all in this major northern city. The Bead Shop in Afflecks Palace is a great example of a thriving craft business. Huge selection of beads and jewellery making accessories are available as well as world famous Swarovski crystals.
