The Sachas Hotel with this entrance on Tib Street is part of the Britannia Hotel chain.  It offers 3Star accommodation in 223 rooms and offers the services of Spindles Health & Leisure Club including a heated swimming pool. 

Sachas occupies the former C&A store which fronted on Oldham Street.  If you click on the link below you can see the building in 1948.

C&A Oldham Street

You can glimpse the building in the old post cards below.

C&A is an International chain of clothing stores founded in 1841 by Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer, Dutch textile merchants.  They traded in the UK until 2001.  The familiar C&A logo is still a common site throughout Europe but no longer on Oldham Street or elsewhere in the UK.
