LEGO opens new stores in the US and Canada
LEGO has announced new stores opening in Tennessee, New York, and Wisconsin, here in the States, plus a new Brick storefront in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. And there’s plenty of pomp and circumstance, plus freebies, to enjoy.
The store grand openings will be as follows:
April 27-29: Opry Mills Nashville, TN
April 27-29: Eastview Victor, NY
May 4-6: Oakridge Centre Vancouver, BC
May 11-13: Mayfair Wauwatosa, WI
On these opening weekends, LEGO will be sponsoring Master Builder construction of 8 foot tall models depicting either Spongebob Squarepants, Buzz Lightyear or R2-D2 (depending on the store). And what’s cool is that kids will be chosen to be the Brickmaster’s assistant for the LEGO model construction. Participants will receive a Certificate of Achievement and I’m sure plenty of photo opportunities with their new creation (but what, no brick sets for the effort?!).
Other swag available to celebrate the openings include …
Free LEGO Minifigure T-Shirt with a $35 purchase on Friday
Free Limited-Edition LEGO Store Set with a $35 purchase on Saturday (this is going to be a popular one)
and a free Exclusive Minfigure Set with a $35 purchase on Sunday.
There is also going to be a one year anniversary celebration of the LEGO Store at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA. There will be a huge brick building event plus special deals that will include a free LEGO Star Wars Mini TIE Fighter model with $50 purchase.
