(Please note – this is an archived story about our previous location, we have now moved to Failsworth, Manchester)
The official opening of our warehouse shop took place on 4 October 2008. The ceremony was conducted by the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Mavis Smitheman, who was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to pay us a visit.
The Alcohol-Free Shop web site has been serving customers nationwide since 2006 but the demand has always been there for a physical presence.
We opened the warehouse shop for customers who prefer a more traditional shopping experience, and those who wish to sample our products before buying.
It is located at the historic Hope Mill on Pollard Street in the city’s one time industrial heartland within the Eastlands regeneration area close to Manchester City FC stadium.
The store is on the perimeter of Manchester city centre behind the Central Park Retail Park on Great Ancoats Street and is easily accessible from the motorway network with ample parking.
The shop, which is open Monday to Saturday between 11am and 6pm, is at Hope Mill, 113 Pollard Street, Ancoats, Manchester, M4 7JA. If you are setting out to find us, please feel free to call on 0845 388 3068 for directions (it can be useful to take the number with you as the Mill can be hard to find).
We offer free tasting sesions every day and you are more than welcome to sample any of our drinks.
