Rare Mags, Stockport “We collect magazines so you can collect magazines.”

Founded during the national lockdown in 2020, here at Brothers & Sisters we believe that independent shops, designers and retail businesses are integral to defining a city.

There is an inspiring array of small, creative retail businesses in Greater Manchester but we couldn’t find an online space that collected them altogether to offer a single index.

Brothers & Sisters aims to give the online shopper easy access to unique products and small, independent shops – a place to mooch.

Competing with global corporates is tough (cough, Bezos), how we shop and where we spend our money is changing so now, more than ever, we need to come together to support each other and support local business.

We are Brothers & Sisters.
