Celebrate Chand Raat at the North’s largest

Manchester’s retail landscape has received a welcome facelift this month following the official opening of the largest Asian department store outside of London.

With over 20,000sqft of shopping space over two expansive floors, Manchester Plaza is the only place you need to visit for all your retail needs.

SONY DSCUp to 40 retailers operate from inside the modern establishment, whilst a huge couture bridal suite will soon occupy space upstairs.

After a busy day’s shopping and browsing the extensive collections of goods on offer, shoppers can then relax at the 200-capacity dining hall, which will serve up scrumptious meals and bites – set to open after Ramadan.

Tariq Mohammed is one of the directors of Manchester Plaza and has overseen the development of the centre.

“We have seen the success of places like East Shopping Centre in London recently, and it just goes to show that there is a real desire for Asian shopping centres of real high quality,” he said.

“Our aim here is to bring the same, high-end concept to the North, with Cheetham Hill in Manchester, chosen as the site for a piece of retail luxury.

“A massive range of designer labels are available in-store, making the Plaza a one-stop destination for fashion fans across the country.”

Retailers from across the North of England have signed up to be part of the Plaza revolution with units almost full to capacity.

“We have been inundated with enquires from both retailers and customers alike since our opening and there is still room for a handful of clients for remaining stores,” Tariq added.

“Shops are stocked-up as and ready for the visitors who will be in for a host of surprises inside this amazing complex.”


Next month, shoppers and members of the public alike are invited to call down to the Plaza for special Chand Raat celebrations.

Running from 7pm until 2am on Tuesday 5th July, it is bound to be an event no family will want to miss.

“Everyone is welcome to call down on the day and celebrate the last day of Ramadan,” Tariq added.

“We have a number of surprises in store for guests and I look forward to seeing a host of old and new faces.”

Some of the retailers and brands customers can visit at Manchester Plaza include: Kamar Ilyas, Limelight Designer, Image Boutique, Glamour, Stylo Shoes UK, SweetieMe, Rahman Jewellers, Soni Collection, Jai Simran Boutique, Babu’s, Floral Clothing, Asim Jofa, Gul Ahmed Collection, Charizma, Maryams Clothing, Ramsha Clothing, Plus many more…
