THE Koroit Lions Club Op Shop continues to be a success story as it heads into its third financial year.

Lions club president Bruce Lowenthal said business remains brisk.

“We are still getting really good feedback about the shop,” Mr Lowenthal said.

“People like the layout of the shop, the range we have, and the prices.

“Our members put in a lot of hours in the shop and we are lucky enough to have other volunteers from the community, which is just invaluable.”

Mr Lowenthal said the old infant welfare centre building next to the op shop has been renovated and is now being used to sort clothes and other items.

He said this will open up more space in the shop itself.

All funds from the op shop go back into Koroit community projects.

The Lions club is currently working to raise funds to construct a barbecue area at the old Koroit Railway Station.

The club has already built a playground at the site and had a hand in making the nearby skate park a reality.
