A HUGE thank you to everyone who joined us for our Holiday Open House last Saturday! We were completely blown away by how many of you came to jumpstart the holiday season with us! We had so much fun with you… so much so that we don’t have any pictures to prove it. You’ll just have to take our word for it! 🙂 

We are in the middle of our busy season now and The Emporium is bustling with activity. We have some great events that you won’t want to miss this November and December!!!


HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE. One of the most important facets of what we do, is to give back to our community. We are collecting toys for children ages birth through 18 years old for families in need. 

Journey Church conducts Christmas stores at South Ridge Elementary (Castle Rock) and Bishop Elementary (Englewood) for families in need. All donated gifts will be purchased by families at significantly discounted prices (80% off), and all funds go directly back to the schools. For more information, please click here.

We would love for you to join us in these efforts! We encourage you to bring a toy with you or purchase one the next time you’re in and leave it in the collection box next to the front doors.


CASTLE ROCK’S STARLIGHTING. November 18th 2pm-6:30pm.  This is a tradition that is without a doubt my most favorite time to be downtown!

The star was first constructed and lit in 1936 as a hope to draw tourists to the area, as well as, give the community a positive boost in the middle of the Great Depression. The star has been lit almost every Christmas season since. It has also been illuminated at other times as a beacon of hope or celebration, such as following the terrorist attacks on 9/11. To see the full history, check out the Castle Rock Chamber’s write up here

The Emporium is pleased to present a concert series during Castle Rock’s Starlighting for the 4th year in a row. Please join us for:

  • 2pm – Shauna Chanda & Darren Rahn
  • 3pm – Biff Gore, as seen on NBC’s The Voice
  • 4pm & immediately following the star being lit – Hazel & The Hazel Miller Band

All three of these groups have joined us for Starlighting in the past, and we look forward to another dance party in the street! For more information on parking, walking guides, and other festivities that day, please visit the Chamber’s official event page here


SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY. November 25th. To thank you for choosing to shop small and shop local, we will have a few perks for you on Small Business Saturday! The first 150 customers in the store will receive a gift from us, the first 100 customers to purchase items from us will receive yet another gift, and we will have hot cider all day for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for choosing to shop small and local!



GIRLS NIGHT OUT. December 8th 4pm-8pm. We couldn’t end 2017 without hosting another Girls Night Out! Join us for a nutcracker ballet themed shopping experience with all of the festivities you’ve come to look forward to at an Emporium event! We’ll have sweet and savory treats to enjoy, wine, entertainment, sales and a good ol’ fashioned time!
