Unicorn Grocery

Since opening in 1996 Unicorn Grocery has offered an unbeatable range of affordable, fresh and wholesome food to its South Manchester customer base.

Maintaining an approach of direct purchasing and competitive pricing, Unicorn has become one of the largest and most successful wholefood outlets in the UK. We were named the Soil Association's 'Best Independent Retailer' in 2016, adding to previous award wins from The Observer Food Monthly and BBC Radio Four.

Unicorn offers a huge range of affordable, wholesome food with a focus on organic, fair-trade and local sourcing. Ethical principles remain at the core of the business and influence not only what is sold but also how business is done. As a workers co-operative the shop is owned and managed by the people who work in it, and they have created a place they want to shop in themselves.
