Rig Out – Shopping in Manchester

The Thomas St Post Office

 Thomas St. Post Office re-opened its doors a year ago in the winter of 2008. Bringing brands from around the world to Manchester and to offer a retail experience not so soon forgotten. Carhartt, Pointer and Edwin are parceled happily amongst the likes of Undefeated, Staple and Idiom.

Visit and indulge yourself, Thomas St. Post Office, a bastion of freedom in an all too conditioned world. The first time I found The Post Office I asked whether they stocked Visvim shoes and was told that “Manchester isn’t ready for Visvims yet, Visvims are for the ultra cool”. Shopping here is guaranteed to keep your rig out fresh. Located on Thomas Street in the Northern Quarter
