Shopping in Altrincham

Kristy Stott, Theatre Editor

One of the original market towns, shopping in Altrincham has undergone a period of resurgence over the past few years. With a fantastic marketplace and excellent transport links, we’re seeing more independent shops and businesses flourish.

A great addition to the high street revival, Altrincham’s main appeal has always been its specialist shops, family-owned businesses and artisan allure. Affluent and stylish, shoppers can find everything from vintage clobber to designer clothing, and high-end bespoke kitchens to ethically sourced home accessories.
