Moribund's is a small shop located in Knockturn Alley. It is located next to the The Spiny Serpent, and opposite Borgin and Burkes. The shop is named after its shopkeeper, Moribund.


The contents of this shop are unknown, but through the small window there was an orange glowing light, indicating that the shop was open, despite its front door being locked.[1]


The door to the shop was locked during the summer of 1992, when Harry Potter tried to open it during an accidental visit to Knockturn Alley.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • The name Moribund comes from Latin moribundus, and means literally "dying", although the modern English usage of moribund is often with the sense of "stagnant" or "apathetic".
