Now Even Morrissey’s Got A Pop-Up Shop
Who doesn’t love a good pop-up shop? No one! That’s why even the reigning king of I-Hate-Everything will get his own this weekend in advance of his Manchester show. The Morrissey pop-up shop opened at the Salford Lad’s Club — the site of a famous Smiths photograph seen on the sleeve of The Queen Is Dead — today in Manchester, and it’s being called the “Mporium.” The shop will only be open for three days, and the official Morrissey Facebook page advertises the pop-up shop as follows:
SALFORD LAD’S CLUB Pop Up MPORIUM Store NOW OPEN!
Morrissey’s pop up Mporium store is now open at the legendary Salford Lad’s Club purveying a variety of new designs, accessories, SIGNED Bona Drag vinyl bundles and SIGNED HARDBACK autobiography bundles sold on a first come first serve basis.
If you’re not able to make it to the shop the Mporium store is open all year round and to celebrate we’re giving away a limited edition Morrissey Harrington jacket to one lucky winner!
Simply sign up to receive updates @ the UK Mporium store and our winner will be selected at random at the end of this month. (Note if you are already signed up then your name will automatically be entered into the draw).

• Friday 19th August (10.30am – 4.30pm)
