We are very excited to announce that Afflecks is to become a dog friendly venue!
More and more people City living are now loving owners of dogs and Afflecks has recently taken the decision to welcome well behaved dogs with responsible owners through its doors. This will make Afflecks the first shopping centre in the UK to be a fully dog friendly shopping venue.

The decision fits in nicely as we prepare to welcome a new independent pet business, currently trading in Chorlton called Betty & Butch.
Betty & Butch were recently awarded Pet Retailer of the Year and will be the first dedicated dog shop in Manchester City Centre whereby dog owners can use it as a one stop shop to get food and accessories for their pooch.
