Is the sandersons seconds textiles still based in the ancoats area of manchester?

No. It appears that the Sanderson Factory Outlet (Sanderson Clearance Outlet) that was previously located at 2 Pollard Street in Ancoats, Manchester closed prior to 2010.

However, we're pleased to let you know that you can still find Sanderson seconds about 55 miles away in Lancaster. According to several sources, the Standfast and Barracks Factory Shop, which is located next door to the factory that prints fabrics for Sanderson and others, sells slight seconds and discontinued fabrics.

Details: Standfast & Barracks Factory Shop, Caton Road, Lancaster, LA1 3PA, T: 01524840500.

Opening times: Monday through Friday 9:30am-3pm, Saturday 10am-3:30pm, closed Sundays. Public transport: Lansil, by Langdale Road (249 feet E).

Factory Shop visitors are requested to use the shop car park on the opposite side of the road. Besides Sanderson, the factory also prints fabrics for Morris & Co., Zoffany, Designers Guild, Liberty, and Ralph Lauren.

Directions: On the M6, take Junction 34 onto A683/Caton Road. Follow the signs towards Lancaster city centre. Site entrance and the car park for visitors is located on the right side of the road, 50 metres beyond the Shell petrol station.

If you care to make a trip south down to Berkhamsted soon, what we hear is a tremendous amount of fabric, remnants, wallpaper, and curtains have been donated by Sanderson and Zoffany to the Returned to Glory shop for the Hospice of St Francis, and will soon be on sale for one week at the shop with cost starting from £5. A preview evening is to be held next month. For more details on the sale, ring on T: 01442874356.
