General store

A welcome addition to MediaCity, Ancoat’s favourite General Store offers up local and artisan produce, alongside an impressive roster of food traders and everyday essentials. Think of a convenience store 2.0, selling the basics to the swankiest on the shelves. You’ll find craft beers on tap, coffee in beans, street food traders on site, fresh pastries and good music.
