Since 2003, Stanley and Trish Chin have been at the helm of this fun and family-friendly store, which is acknowledged by those in the know as a true icon of the north.
Alfred’s promises a sensory and happy in-store experience. Its reputation has been built on a foundation of quality gifts, trusted brands and personalised customer service.
