Since then, the brand has been expanding outwards, opening outlets across London, Glasgow, Bristol, Liverpool, Brighton, Birmingham and now Manchester.

Primely located on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter, Cass Art Manchester offers a vast selection of high-quality art materials at affordable prices (with a Lowest Price Guarantee), and features a dedicated art space, with a regular programme of workshops and free exhibitions.
