Opening day is now fixed for February 27th. :king:

Manchester Vacs, Bull's Head Building. 605 Gorton Road, Reddish, Stockport. SK5 6NX.



We are physically moving from our current location on Abbey Hey Lane on Wednesday the 24th (when we are usually closed). We are open in our new location Thursday the 25th. Our official opening party with Gordon Burns and a live broadcast from our shop with Tameside Radio 103.6 FM is between 11am and 2pm on Saturday the 27th February.

For anyone local, there will be nibbles, drinks, a chance to meet Gordon Burns (a great selfie opportunity  :-X), peek around our new shop, meet the staff, say hello to the Tameside radio people and maybe even bag yourself a new Dyson or Sebo vacuum cleaner at a discount on the day. We will have over 100 refurbished and new Dyson and Sebo vacuum cleaners on the shop floor, and our new Dyson museum area will be open so you can look at not only a genuine prototype Dyson, but a rare American licensed Dyson (Fantom) and several of the rarest Dyson models from the early days of Dyson.

As locals of Tameside, Manchester and Stockport will know, the Bull's Head building is an iconic former public house sitting on Reddish Lane/Gorton Road that straddles the physical boundaries of all three districts, and is a well-known local landmark. It has stood shamefully semi-derelict for the last few years until we took it over last year. We have been refurbishing it since last October, and we are very much looking forward to serving the Dyson and Sebo owners of Tameside, Manchester and Stockport with spare parts, repairs and servicing. Not to mention new and refurbished machine sales.

We are not a brand new business; we are an already established business relocating once again back to Reddish. We are a family business who has been in nearby Abbey Hey (Gorton) for almost a decade; a family who first had a shop in Reddish (@184) in the mid 1970's.

We look forward to meeting anyone and everyone who is interested on Saturday the 27th February between 11am and 2pm at the Bull's Head.  :thumbsup:

Nice! It's a shame it's like a few hours away because I'd love to pop in and say Ahoy!

Looks tasty though dude ;)

It has took them a few days to wake up, but now we have the presenters and others well-known locally tweeting about it.

Your new place is coming along wonderfully, friend. Very happy for you! One day I hope to have a location as prime as yours. We've actually a few old Fantom machines if you're ever in the market for a housing, keep me in mind. I'll do it cut rate. Congrats champ! Keep up the good work.

Today is moving day - I'll be aching by tonight I suspect.

Good luck! Don't break anything!

Don't forget the moving pictures! You chosen a machine to give the shop a final cleanup prior to unlocking the door on opening day?

I can just imagine a Krypton Factor test involving the re-assembly of a cyclone. Quickest wins a nice prize!

Good luck with the move. I hope it all goes well. I am hoping to move into a shop soon too. Just trying to get the lease sorted out and then can get things started. Maybe 3 weeks? Nothing as fancy as yours though!

My preferred choice is to buy something but locally, it is proving difficult. They either ask stupid money or only want to rent.

Good luck! Hope you are doing well so far, though I am sure everything going to go smooth:)
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Thanks for the good wishes all, we are in. 2 vans, 5 blokes and both ladies organising stuff office side. A little bit of stuff still to bring over tomorrow, plenty of putting away and sorting still to do, but we broke its back today. Computers are all in, net and card machine working, coffee machine is in, half the signs are up outside (sign men started a day early), even some of tomorrows orders already printed. Pretty mammoth day actually.  :icon_nod:

I'll get some pics tomorrow when we are more sorted.

People have started to drift in already today for a mooch about; which is nice.

Yes, our Sebo demonstrators come tomorrow, An X1, an X4 Pet and a Felix with the Union flag bag. And we need to get familiar with them.  :thumbsup:

The place looks full already though. Gawd knows how we got all that stuff in the last place. Van after van stacked to the roof! The great thing about moving is you find loads of swag that you either forgot you had or couldn't find before. I found loads of Dyson washer stuff and some new DC15, DC18, DC21 and Airblade stuff I forgot we had.

Very nice,

Now I see you have a mat in your entrance... Where did you get that from? I'd be very interested in one of those!

Mighty fine entrance you have there. Like your signage. Very nice place you have there.

When setting up my wife's fashion accessory shop, people were knocking the windows and we were selling as we were putting things out. Not even opened but it's always good to get some sales in!
