Lilydale Marketplace
Hutchison Street,

Melways Map 38 E.5.

Are you like me and dislike those big impersonal shopping complexes? Then think small and seek out the smaller ones. Lilydale Marketplace fits the bill.

Shopping centre entrance
The Entrance.

It has 57 shops, and can cater for your every need.

The basis of every shopping centre, big or small, is the large retailers. Lilydale Marketplace has three. Woolworths and Aldi for your food and groceries and Big W for almost everything else.

Woolworths entrance

Need some cash to go shopping if you don't rely on cards? There are three banks, ANZ, CBA and NAB, plus five ATMs.

Need something to wear, to work in, to play in, attend a wedding in, or just for a night out? You are well catered for with nine clothing outlets, from Lowes for just men's wear to Katies and Millers for just ladies apparel and Jeans West for non-gender jeans.

Clothing shops
Millers & Crossroads for ladies wear.

If after purchasing your clothing the pants are too long then Fit It Alterations will fix them as well as replace zips and other clothing alterations and repairs.

Your feet are not forgotten. Spend Less Shoes has a good range of men's and ladies shoes, as does Rivers and Big W
