Roar with the Lions and save at the Salvos
Surprisingly there are only two op shops in Mooroolbark, far enough apart as to not be in direct competition with each other. Perhaps it's a sign of the times but both shops are not accepting donations at the moment.
The Lions Club of Mooroolbark operate this op shop at 50 Manchester Road. It is not a large shop, but its tightly packed rows of goodies display a large range of items. They have a range of women's shoes that would make Imelda Marcos envious.
The Salvation Army's Mooroolbark op shop is quite large, spread out over several rooms. Consequently the merchandise is not cramped or crowded. Every turn in the shop presents a different range goodies, all of a high quality.
