The 3,500sq ft store, located on the ground floor of the recently completed Lightbox housing development, features a coffee shop offering freshly ground Ancoats Coffee, juices, smoothies and cold brews, as well as pop-up appearances from local street food vendors. An outdoor seating area for up to 30 customers is to be added to the site.
General Store MediaCityUK, the first of the group to be over two floors, also has a mezzanine space that will be used as an “alcohol emporium” and tasting area.
The retailer tweeted: “We are proud to have worked with Booths to offer positions to colleagues from the closing store. We welcome all feedback and look forward to nestling into the community.”
Store Retail Group will also be opening Deansgate Square General Store in the near future.
