Stockport has risen to become one of our city-region’s gems, catalysed by more affordable overheads for businesses, lower rents and house prices for people, and the whole ‘five minutes on a train from Piccadilly’ thing. A faster journey time than most people living in central suburbs. Old Town General Store is a perfect reflection of this, a high end fashion emporium run by someone who spent three decades working for prestigious outlets in landmark locations — Harvey Nichols, Selfridges — before taking a punt on their own operation, in their home town, which is now known for independent eating, drinking, and shopping.

Opening its doors in 2020 will speak volumes to those who remember what things were like back then. Retailers had been up against it for years, but the pandemic was challenging on an unprecedented scale. A test which only the best could really pass, it’s the quality and unique choice that really sets Old Town General store apart from the rest. Menswear-wise, brands like Universal Works, Dubbleware, YMC, Drake’s, Oliver Spencer, Kestin, and Edmmond Studios adorn the rails and racks. Jostling for attention next to Saucony and Pendleton, Anonymous Ism, and Sandqvist. 

Meanwhile, women can pick up pieces from Armor Lux, Stella Nova, Flower Mountain, Girls of Dust and L.F.Markey to name but a few. In addition to bags, shoes, trousers, coats, t-shirts, polos, skirts and dresses, you’ll also find a great lifestyle range on offer. Toadstool cups, OMG hot sauces, Magpie + Peanuts soap, Marvis toothpaste, BamBaw reusable bottles, greetings cards, novelty match boxes, fragrant candles, sandwich boxes, and barista kettles. The list could go on, with 2,000 square feet of space displaying goods large and small, not to mention a small gallery area which offers space for up and coming and established local artists to put their latest works out for all to see.
