Mary Roberts, Lincoln Park Emporium

Mary Roberts and her husband Odie have owned and operated Lincoln Park Emporium in Historical Downtown Greeley since 2009. The Emporium has stores inside like Miss Mary’s Kitchen, Owlz Used Books, the Bedding Balcony, and The Gift Shop with “Made in Greeley” items.

They moved to Greeley in 2005 from Portland, Oregon with plans to retire but fate had another plan. They had not worked in retail before but thought they might be able to learn. (?) Odie worked in the Aerospace Industry for 30 years and Mary worked in the Criminal Justice system for 30 years, so they had management, finance and human resource skills. Support from the Greeley area community has made it possible to stay open.

Always a joiner, Mary is active in Rotary, Assistance League of Greeley and Friends and Newcomers. She serves on the GURA Board and the High Plains Library District Board. Gathering with other business owners has been one of the best parts of owning a business so that’s her other activity.
