Where: Afflecks, Tib Street
Thunder Egg is a independent shop on the first floor of the Tib Street building. Affleck’s Palace was founded in 1982 by James and Elaine Walsh and it was named after the former Affleck & Brown department store, which stood opposite the building on Oldham Street. In 2008 the business was reformed under the name Afflecks and it continues to operate as a indoor market with many independent shops and businesses catering for a wide cultural range of fashions and music with many other unique items.
Our nominee remembers:
” It’s cute, colourful and full of quirky clothing! Even in today’s difficult economic climate, it’s a brilliant Manchester independent shop that has stuck around for over 25 years! ”
