    Not been for a while and last time I went, I never really bothered with "designer" clothing however in my experience, they will sell to anyone as long as you can hit the MOQ (which is generally quite low)

    Be very careful sourcing 'designer goods' from Cheetham Hill.

    Not for clothing because I don't really sell clothing - I imagine most (if not all) designer goods will be fake however based on experiences that friends of mine have had (although I don't think they really cared too much if I am being honest) but if you are looking for authentic goods then you may want to re-evaluate.

    there won't be many major warehouses with branded..
    'crown sports' do a little as a few others do.
    a lot of copy stuff around there so be careful

    There is no such thing as branded items from bury new road, all they sell are high quality copies, which are pritty much identical to originals, also in most of the shops there is NO MOQ

    Also most of the shops sell the same stuff but at different prices so go to a few before buying

    Theres too many to list to be honest, and don't be afraid to stray off the main road.
    There are a couple of decent wholesalers on the back streets such as derby st etc..
    Most say trade only, but don't really ask much.. Just say only recently opened up awaiting to register company etc?

    I know what you mean, the funniest thing I've seen down there was I went into one of the shops asing for a certain item and the guy opened the "wall" and there was another room there full of stock, I have been a few times and there are always people standing out side the shops trying to sell you stuff

    Went there around a year back (true story)..
    In search of unbranded polo t-shirts.. Found a few places doing them, unfortunately -- they wouldn't supply us, as it was a cover up for their frontage..
    They had unbranded goods on display and stacked up to decieve t/s etc
