About the Emporium

Mount Airy's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination.

The Main Oak Emporium occupies the northernmost half of a city block bordered by Main and Oak, and City Hall Streets in Historic Downtown Mount Airy, NC. The Emporium is the area's favorite shopping, dining and entertainment center featuring a great collection of unique gifts, gourmet foods, outdoor clothing and shoes.  The"Good Life Outfitter" and The Loaded Goat Sports Pub & Grill, are all a part of the experience at Main Oak Emporium. "Enjoy the Good Life"!

Not only are visitors impressed with the extraordinary shopping and great food, they will also find the Emporium's interior intriguing. Yadkin Valley Living Magazine described the Emporium as a "terrific reuse of an old heritage building." The building's vintage architectural elements and original charm have been preserved while being transformed into one of North Carolina's most exciting destinations.

According to documentation on historical structures, the landmark Main Street building was constructed circa 1905 and was used for decades as the storefront of the John H. Midkiff Hardware Company. The company's two brick warehouses were added in separate renovation phases and completed in the 1930s. All three buildings now comprise the not-to-be-missed Downtown landmark, Main Oak Emporium.
