Many businesses can see the appeal of operating their businesses from Stockport with superb transport links and nearby locations such as Manchester and Cheshire. With all these benefits Stockport is experiencing a fantastic change and with sought-after postcodes, more people are choosing to move to this popular location.

Big investment in the town centre and affordable housing is providing opportunities for businesses looking to expand or relocate close to Manchester.

Many areas are experiencing casual eating as the bar and cafe scene has started to expand in recent years creating a great social scene for all generations.

Office and industrial space are also proving popular as available space is quickly occupied. One Stockport Exchange, one of the first office buildings, were impressively fully let within six months.

With companies such as Advanced Laser Technology, CDL and O’Neill Patient Solicitors choosing to relocate here Stockport is a worthy investment.

There are also other opportunities with leisure and retail developments offering a new reach for the big brand names. The Redrock, a £45m development has a massive range of restaurants and bars with some well-known brands such as PizzaExpress, Zizzi, The Light Cinema and The Gym group.

As well as big brands the Historic Stockport Indoor Market has loads of independent sellers offering various products from local produce to beer and gifts. It has bags of character so if you are looking to open a small retail business it could be worth checking it out.

Let’s not forget the many antique and vintage shops full of character including The Vintage Emporium with a vast range of vintage and antiques which is a great place for anyone who loves exploring.

Whatever your budget you will be able to find a business opportunity in Stockport, it’s certainly not to be dismissed!
