Afflecks Palace is rightfully hidden away from Market St, meaning that the enraged shoppers go to the Arndale Centre! Due to its appeal to the younger generations, not many of the over 30s visit Affleck's. Also, scallies/townies would rather spend their time in JJB and Rockport rather than here. Which is why i love it! There is loads to do, clothes shops, a piercing and tattoo studio, clairvoyant and cafe! its is easy to spend a good few hours in here, and though it can get quite busy, it is always fun!
