Customers at Tesco in Baguley were subjected to a terrifying ordeal when armed robbers struck.
Witnesses said men dressed in balaclavas stormed the store on Altrincham Road, Wythenshawe at 11am today (Nov 4).
One witness said the men demanded cash from the safe and from the foreign currency booth.
The men then sped away in a waiting car.
No-one was seriously hurt in the incident, although one woman is believed to have been taken to hospital as a precaution.
The store was closed this afternoon and cordoned off by police as they carried out their investigations.
