Moraga Barber Shop Celebrates 50 Years
Moraga Shopping Center, 1431 Moraga Way - (925) 247-1101

Elroy Motta is the lucky owner of the half-century-old business that was one of the first to open in the Moraga Shopping Center at the corner of Moraga Way and Moraga Road, along with the liquor store and the dry cleaner. Those must have been the basic needs of Moragans 50 years ago! Motta bought the shop in 2000 from Gary Leo, who bought it from first owner Jack Del Pozo in 1985. Since the mid-20th century, the shop has continued to cut hair and shave Moraga gentlemen in style. To celebrate the anniversary on Saturday, March 14, Motta will offer each patron a lottery ticket.
