Outlet stores

Nothing special here, the usual chain stores found in most out of town malls. Not as big as the Trafford Centre. Convenient for the Lowery, BBC and ITV.

This was the first time I've visited this shopping nirvana! As a regular theatregoer, this time I arrived early so had a look round. It's very pleasurable and not too big - every outlet has huge discounted prices and special offers. I was impressed and will certainly return and pick up some bargains! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Lowry Outlet store- 100% sure this is where people go to die. With its corridors reaking of dismay and staff looking as bored as the shoppers, I am flabbergasted as to how this place as managed to keep its head out of the waters for so many years. With Manchester pretty much touching cloth (Its 10 mins on a... More

Not bad for a stroll around when you don't want to go to a large shopping area. Good place to get specific items, could do with more well known shops, some pointless places. Restaurants are lovely! Could do with another bar instead of the lime bar as this can get rowdy at times. Nice and quiet though.

Visited before a trip to the Lowry Theatre, was hard pressed to even spend an hour here. Shops that I had spent money in in the past had now gone. It's a shame because the area on a whole is lovely. Needs some input.

This outlet mall has always struggled to attract shoppers despite being next to Media city and the Lowry theatre. It's now worse than ever since they introduced car park charges. It used to be up to 4 hours free parking providing you bought something in the outlet. There's plenty of places to eat but the shops are half empty. Real... More

We popped into the shopping centre after seeing a show at the Lowry theatre. We were very disappointed at the range of shops. The centre was clean and did offer some coffee shops but if you can travel into the centre of Manchester there are hundreds of shops with reductions or sale items on offer. We were disappointed and wouldn't... More

Not very many shops for younger adults. But the food court was very nice to eat in at, food was yummy from Chicken Cottage. There was a cinema inside the outlet, unfortunately we didn't have time to go in. Got most things that you need, not a bad little shopping centre.
