About Piccadilly Records

Piccadilly Records opened in 1978 and prospered in the post-punk 80s, selling a mixture of rock, pop, indie and alternative music. In 1990 the current management took over Piccadilly Records and continued to build upon its reputation as one of the world’s best independent record shops. In 1997 the shop moved to its current location in the vibrant Northern Quarter area of Manchester.

In recent years we have been voted best Independent Record Store at the prestigious Music Week awards and also Best Record Store at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards. We have also featured in countless national newspapers; Observer’s World’s Best Shops, the Guardian’s Best Record Shops and at No1 in The Independent’s top 50 UK Independent Record Shops.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, helpful service and stocking an across-the-board variety of genres from Indie, disco, funk, house, Balearic, psych and everything in-between on both vinyl and CD.
