Yeah...it's vintage clothes brought in from different places.
Well not all of it, but i presumed it was second hand or faulty like the items in Pop Boutique or Rags To Bitches.

I may be wrong on this occasion though...i don't know.

It's on Brown Street off Market Street next to the post office.
It opened about four months ago now it think.
I'd recommend it instead of badly stocked, overpriced shops like HMV and Music Zone.
Just to think, Music Zone was like the leader of cheaper priced music just a few years ago...sparse stock now with the prices of new cd's creeping up too.

Anyway miserable, negative comments done and dusted!

I went in the Apple store in the Trafford Centre today and I am glad I didnt get a job there because I wasnt very impressed. I was looking foward to going in there as I havent been in their before and when I got in the place was tiny. Also the staff are ment to be the best staff around were they ****! There were about 5 staff for the whole store , with about 60 or 70 people in. Also they had these security guards who looked like they where about to start a riot.

I'm going there tommorow to get my ipod fixed, do you know if they have a repairing section in the shop. I'm trying to find out whether they'll send it off or not, or fix it in the store.

Christ, this place has been open over a year - at least.
Cracking little store, with a top little coffee shop in the basement.

It's been open at least 18 months I reckon. Great place. Louder than Bombs for a fiver and you're laughing.

manchester is behind nottingham for retail, so it begs the question what does it have to do to get ahead of a city that is top of the food chain in retail right now...

What!!!!!!!!!...... you could fit nottingham city centre inside the trafford centre tenfold!!!!!!!!!

In 2 Years time...WESTFIELD(an Australian retail development company are going to build your city a £200mill retail centre......once they are finished in Derby*/Bradford...)

PS the best shop at the trafford centre must be the trafford tavern..they serve a lovely pint of guinness!!!!

*MPB got the R.C package.....40,000 metre cube of concrete....LOVELY!!!!!!!!!!

/\ loved it, full of gagets and gizmos. I just don't like the fact that it's in the Trafford centre, they should've opened on King Street where Next moved out.

Ye theres also afew spots along market street where stores have closed. Next being one, littlewoods is finally closing and so has Allsports. Has anything replaced that next store yet or is it just sitting empty. Hopefully Apple will open a larger store in the centre of town!! I recon it will happen at the end of next year.
