YHA City Shopping in the Sales

City Shopping in the Sales

Almost as traditional as singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight and taking the Christmas tree down on the 6th January are the January sales. Yes, those iconic sales made up to get rid of the leftover surplus stock from Christmas are a rite of passage for shopaholics and bargain hunters alike.

From the city centres to smaller towns and outlet stores, once the turkey has been digested it’s time to hit those sales and bag yourself a bargain.

Often hailed as the new London, Manchester is the UK’s second largest city in terms of square footage and has the ninth largest population in Great Britain. As a shopping capital, it doesn’t fair too badly either.

With designer shops including Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Kurt Geiger, up-market department stores like Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser and Debenhams plus all the high street favourites like H&M, Topshop and All Saints vying for space in the city centre and huge shopping centres like the Arndale and the Trafford centres nearby, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for.

And amazing shops is not the only thing that this city has to offer. If you’re just not that into shopping (yes, some people aren’t) you can have a great day out at the Manchester Museum, take in the scenery at Alexandra Park or take in a matinee performance at the Robert Powell Theatre.

The night times are covered as well, with some fantastic restaurants offering delicious meals and drinks to help you unwind after a busy day in the city, as well as music venues and bars where you can dance the night away or wind down with friends and family. Yes, Manchester has it all and is the perfect place for a New Year shopping trip.

YHA Manchester has stacks of beds available from just £10 per person per night. With prices like that – can you afford not to?!
