Credit Crunchers: Digbeth’s hidden gem

We went bargain hunting in town


If you’re looking for affordable vintage attire, this is the place to go. Credit Crunchers is located about a five minute walk from the Bullring and is just opposite the rag market. (23 Moat Lane to be precise.) Not only does it have very low prices, it’s restocked every 2 days so you’ll always find something appealing.

You may easily walk past and turn a blind eye but you would be a fool to do so, though it’s interior and exterior may not be as flashy as the likes of COW or Urban Village (situated in The Custard Factory), Credit Crunchers has far more to offer for the more humble student buyer. In contrast to COW and UV you will not end up spending half of your student loan in one go, the prices at CC left our jaws dropping to the floor – crop tops for 10 pounds, dresses for 7, REAL leather and fur jackets for 10, the list goes on…

They also sell mirrors and other home-ware items, so if you’re wishing to do up your uni room for cheap or to just restock your wardrobe for all those quirky Rainbow nights you’ll no doubt be attending, take some time to browse this treasure chest of wonders!
