Shop now for Note skateboard decks, T-shirts, crew necks, hoodies and coach jackets. Note started in 1999 and is based on the corner of Tib Street and Church Street in the Northern Quarter area of central Manchester. We started life as a small boutique inside the legendary Bones Skatepark in Stockport, before moving to a small unit in Afflecks Palace, Manchester and eventually upgrading to our current location across the street from there.
We are a short distance from many legendary Manchester skate spots such as the BBC banks/curbs, Bridgewater, Castlefield Amphitheatre, Gasworks, Town Hall, Urbis and the Pumpcage skatepark and we are also surrounded by many fashionable, independent retailers and the world famous Afflecks Palace shopping arcade. The shop is set out on two floors. On the ground floor you will find a huge range of skate shoes and Downstairs in the basement you will find a vast selection of skateboard decks, trucks, wheels and hardware.
All the staff in the shop have many years of skateboard experience and some are professional skaters. We proudly sponsor a talented team of skateboarders and you will usually find one or more of them either working or lurking in Note. NOTE produces a range of In Store clothing exclusive to the shop, including skateboard decks, t-shirts, crew necks, hoods and coach jackets.
Arguably the most emblematic is the long running use of the Manchester bee, a symbol of the industrial city’s hardworking past which can be found emblazoned on many civic structures around town. So popular has it proven, we are starting to see it being adopted by copycat brands and artists around the city after years of Manchester’s skateboarders heavily rocking the bee on Manchester’s streets. Note clothing is a staple in the Manchester skate scene and each piece tends to become very collectable as the colours and emblems used change over time, some never to return.
