For over 15 years Steranko has been supplying the good people of South Manchester with top quality clobber from a unique shop on Burton Road in West Didsbury. Set in a lovely old confectioners, owner Pete now sells sweet things for grown up men and women who want something stylish to brighten up their lives.

It all began when Pete decided he had had enough of working in an ICI factory after years of drudgery. And after burning his grubby, stinking overalls, he started to do something he actually enjoyed – dressing people in snazzy clothes.

Now Pete scours the shows all over Europe – in Barcelona and Berlin, Copenhagen and Paris – bringing back the very best, most exciting gear to this small corner of the continent. And with over a decade and a half’s experience, he has a pretty good idea of what his loyal and faithful customers want.

Fashionable but not faddish, contemporary but not clichéd, Steranko is packed with the kind of clothes, shoes and accessories that simply make you feel marvellous, and leave your friends feeling jealous.

But it’s not just clothes and paraphernalia that makes Steranko special. After so long, the place has become a bit more than just a shop that sells togs – it’s become a cultural landmark in the world’s finest cityRight back to the days when the Hacienda set the global standard for a good night out, Steranko has been inextricably interwoven with Manchester’s music, bar and club scene.

While the shop is a prominent feature on the city’s fashion landscape, it has also become a hub for the area’s bright and beautiful creative types, most of whom have rifled through the shop’s clothes rails at least once in their lives. And with as many people dropping by for a natter as for a new pair of jeans, what Pete doesn’t know about Mancunian life isn’t worth bothering about.

And the name? It was inspired by Pete’s brother’s obsession with Marvel comic strips, many of which were drawn by Jim Steranko.

Well you did ask!
