About The Emporium 

Our owners are committed to cultivating a mall where merchants work together to foster community and give back.

Meet the Bomans. Greg and Becky moved to Castle Rock in 1999. They launched an interior design business and have run retail stores & participated in merchant malls since that time. It has always been Greg’s dream to create a store like The Emporium; a dream that came true in 2012.

​Greg is from a small town in Iowa and he places a high value on community. That is why you’ll find such a strong influence on fostering community in everything we do at The Emporium. From providing space for Best Buddies Bakery & Cafe to Greg serving as the chairman of the Downtown Development ​Authority, The Emporium is purposeful in how it gives back to the community. 

The Emporium was born from a long-term vision of owner, Greg Boman, and his wife Becky. Together, they envisioned a high-end merchant mall where families of multiple generations could shop together.

In 2012, The Emporium was born with 12 merchants! Slowly, the mall began to add merchants to its’ numbers and take over the location at 200 Perry Street. In 2014, The Emporium added a commercial kitchen and tea room. In April 2016, Greg was recognized for his tireless efforts to grow The Emporium while contributing to the community when he received the Small Business Person of the Year award from the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce.

​Today, over 50 different small businesses call The Emporium home. Our unique variety of shops continues to grow as we add creative team members to our numbers. The once high-end tea room, has been donated to Wellspring Community to run their Best Buddies Bakery & Cafe. We invite you to come spend the day with us shopping, dining, and unwinding while furnishing your imagination!
