Pop may now have stores scattered around the UK, but its very first retail outlet was located in Manchester, just across the road from its present-day boutique in Afflecks Palace. Each piece of vintage stocked in this store is carefully selected by a dedicated team of vintage lovers, who pay close attention to detail to ensure that only the best quality and most interesting styles secure a coveted spot on the rails. The two-storey space also stocks Pop’s own branded collection and a variety of retro furniture and accessories, as well as housing Barberella’s hair salon and a cute little café.
