Lori and Brian Law
Brian and Lori Law fell in love with Winslow Arizona in 2010 when they bought a shell of a building across from the Winslow theater, the 66 Motor Palace.
In 2017, a second building lured them in, a historic building next to the Standin’ on the Corner Park. In early 2019, they left SoCal and moved full time to Winslow where several months later, they opened The Motor Palace Mercantile, an old-style corner shop heavily influenced by their love of motorcycles and classic cars. The Merc features specialty foods plus vintage and new merchandise–all with an emphasis on Made-in-USA.
Life sometimes takes odd turns. Before moving to Winslow, we imagined opening a store parttime in the historic district and spending the rest of our time riding motorcycles and traveling. And then Covid happened and we became the milk people. It’s a strange path we’ve taken but we’re enjoying the ride!

Brian, a third-generation motorcyclist, retired from a twenty-five-year career managing Harley-Davidson dealerships in December 2019 so he could fulfill his dream of living full time in Winslow. He spends any free moment he has either riding, tinkering, or staring in awe at his two-wheeled contraptions. Or drinking coffee and eating tacos. Lots of tacos.
