General Store MediaCityUK, 2 Blue, MediaCityUK, Salford, M50 2AD – Visit Now

More than just a general store, General Store MediaCityUK is a one-stop-shop for retail and food. This two-storey venue has a mezzanine space that will be used as an alcohol emporium, an on-site coffee vendor, plus a rotating list of street-food vendors. This new venue is an addition to sister locations in Ancoats, Stretford, Sale and an upcoming Deansgate store.

The latest in the forward-thinking General Store brand, showcasing some of the North’s best independent food brands

General Store MediaCityUK can be found on the ground floor of the recently completed Lightbox development, just yards from the Coronation Street set. Just in time for summer, there’ll be an outdoor seating area for up to 30 covers coming soon for customers to enjoy food and drink with a view of the increasingly scenic MediaCityUK. And matching the area’s dog-friendly atmosphere, you can feel free to walk your canine around the store and sit down to relax.

Clocking in at 3500 sq ft, this is the latest in the forward-thinking General Store brand, showcasing some of the North’s best independent food brands, from Nell’s Pizza to The Great North Pie Company. And of course, they sit alongside convenience store essentials, such as toothpaste, toilet paper, baked beans and bread.

A mezzanine space that will be used as an alcohol emporium, an on-site coffee vendor, plus a rotating list of street-food vendors

An on-site coffee counter will serve freshly ground Ancoats Coffee, alongside juices, smoothies and cold brews. As well as a constantly changing lineup of street food vendors, there’ll be regular guest spots from the likes of Just Natas and Cafe Lupo Italiano, who will be popping in with fresh, local bakes, cakes and more.
