New menswear store in Rochdale

Date published: 22 November 2018

A brand new high end menswear store has opened in Rochdale town centre.

Phil Buckley, owner of Buckley Menswear, has styled a new base on the historic South Parade, overlooking the re-opened River Roch in the heart of the town centre conservation area.

Phil Buckley said: “The town centre is really moving forward. The market has just opened, new eating and drinking places like The Medicine Tap are really popular and I’m in a great spot right near the re-opened river and the town hall. This is one of the nicest properties in town and, with the new leisure and retail development opening in 2020, I feel like I’ve got in at a really good time.”

Councillor Allen Brett, leader of Rochdale Borough Council, said: “It’s great to welcome yet another great business to Rochdale town centre with the help of our small business support package. Buckley Menswear will bring yet more life to the beautiful historic area around the re-opened river, which also boasts a brand-new indoor market hall, which opened last week.

“Phil’s decision to put significant investment into this heritage property and create new jobs is a real vote of confidence in the rapidly changing Rochdale town centre and I wish him every success with his fantastic new venture.”
