Wing Yip 

Supermarket Oldham Road

Chinese style roofs and embellishments are an eye-catching new feature on the newly extended Wing Yip Chinese supermarket on Oldham Road. Next to it is a branch of HSBC with the name also written in Chinese.

Liverpool's strapline is 'The World in One City' but that could also be applied to Manchester. The arrival of Chinese style architecture on Oldham Rd is a fantastic addition to Ancoats and is evidence of Manchester's cosmopolitan character.
