Four more stores to open in the USA

Posted by ,

The LEGO retail store expansion shows no sign of slowing down this year. Four new stores for the USA have just been announced:

Danbury Fair, Danbury, CT
West County, Des Peres, MO
North Star Mall, San Antonio, TX
Fashion Place, Murray, UT

I'm told that the latter will be the first in Utah.

Thanks to Xarquar for the news.

Wow! They are expanding quickly. Now they just need to open one in ME

I have my fingers crossed for a Pittsburgh store. It would be fantastic to be able to drive 15 minutes instead of 4 hours to Philly.

The Danbury Fair store will be the first in Connecticut.

That is because there is no factory store at the Enfield, CT offices/factory of Lego.

Up until now the closest stores were in Massachusets (Naitic and Burlington), with a store "over the Hudson River" in West Nyack, New York. All of these stores are about 2 hours away.

Danbury Fair is about an hour+, right on the way to the new store at the Westchester, NY Lego Discovery center.

My cup runeth over. So, maybe I'll be able to visit more often, pick up Lego points, and collect those "club" monthly builds.

Yay for Connecticut! Definitely overdue!

They really are taking over the world...

Ya, I keep hoping for one in Eastern VA. Otherwise it's a 3-3.5h drive to any of the closest three stores.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally! I store in the St. Louis area. That's just around an hour away from where I live.

By in United States,

When is Fargo, ND coming?!?! :(

open in Canada!

Please, please open a store in Norway.........

I cannot believe that a Pittsburgh area store still does not exist... Especially after 2 highly successful Kidsfest events there in 2011 and 2012...

Gravatar
By in United States,

/\ A Pittsburgh store would be nice especially for trips to visit my Uncle and Aunt.
I do wish there was one closer to me in Ohio. There is one around one and a half hours away but it would be nice to be able to drive 20 minutes and get to one.

By in United States,

I've got to add my cries for a Pittsburgh store to the growing cacophony. Unless LEGO wants to put one in my hometown of Morgantown WV! But I'll gladly take Pittsburgh over the 4+ hour drive to Columbus OH.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

They should open one in Buffalo or Niagara Falls for Canadians. Will save about 30% just buying at regular price in the US....sigh

Gravatar
By in United States,

Danbury is an improvement over driving to one of the FOUR stores in the Boston area. The Hatford area would be an ideal location since it is mid-way between Boston and New York.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yay another one is missouri

Gravatar
By in United States,

Buffalo would be great!!! I have to drive 2 hrs to Rochester, NY.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally I will get to enjoy a Lego store Grand Opening and the monthly build fun. Thanks for the St. Louis store!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

UTAH!!! So excited to go to a grand opening. Still a 4 hour drive, but I'll take it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They need more stores in different areas. All four MA stores are 20 minutes outside Boston.

I never knew there was one near Rochester NY. They should have stuck it in Henrietta, I would have applied there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aww none in Louisiana still. One day :)

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

Open in Switzerland!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

YES FINALLY ONE IN UTAH :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are there any dates posted out there yet I would like to know when the one in Texas opens

Gravatar
By in United States,

Bah. KC MO and DALTX are still the closest to me. I would take one even in Tulsa... oh well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Buffalo?? You do realize that there are already 3 stores within an hour of that city (2 in Toronto, 1 in Rochester)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Danbury, CT store opens May 3rd.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm going to whine and moan for a Pittsburgh store too. My closest is a 4+ (one way) trip to Washington DC. Pittsburgh is only an hour and a half. The Olympics gave Pittsburgh consideration, but LEGO is a no go. Really?

There are so few posts here right now, and three are calling for a Pittsburgh store. That's got to mean something, eh?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would like to see one open in Pittsburgh as well. The closest one to me is in Tyson's corner, and I usually never go to DC for anything. I got to Pittsburgh at least 4 times a year even though its 3 hours away. Harrisonburg VA would be nice as well....

Gravatar
By in United States,

YAY for Connecticut. BOO for being so far away from Hartford. I need one closer so I can get a job there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally, a store in Utah! One I can actually reach!

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

One in Puerto Rico please.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Eric John
If it takes an hour and a half to pittsurgh you could make a 3 and half hour trip to Beachwood Ohio from where you are. It wouldn't save much time but a half hour is a half hour.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally in Utah!!! No longer do I have to wait for visits to California to visit a lego store!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm going to be something like the 7th person in this thread asking for a Lego store in Pittsburgh! I'm tired of driving the whole way to Columbus and so are my friends in northern WV!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sigh, still no store in Omaha or Des Moines. I suppose I sould be thankful though, it seems like awhile since a Lego store has opened in the United states.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@lewa99 regarding "they just need to open one in ME"

Indeed. I'm sure they would sell lots of LotR and Hobbit sets in Middle Earth.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fashion place in Utah ! ! ! ! !
15 minute drive........

a smell a grand opening trip in my future !

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zander By ME I meant the initials for the state of "Maine"

By in United States,

A LEGO store in Utah???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES!!!!!!!! I've been waiting for this moment my entire life.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If Utah is getting one, it can't be long until Idaho gets one. Boise needs a Lego store! 6 hours to Utah is still way too long of a drive.

Gravatar
By in United States,

There''s going to be one in Saint Louis - it was in the paper a while ago, should be open by May. I reported this to the news months ago, why wasn't it there?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I let out a nerd squeal when I saw the Murray Utah location. And only a 30 minute drive from my home town to!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd be all for a store in Pittsburgh. As long as it isn't in the South Hills, because I doubt my wallet would hold up very long.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boise is in the middle of nowhere, and not a well know city that people will visit loads. Salt Lake City is famous, it's a travel city, people will drive near it going to and from places in CO and CA and has 10 times the amount of people as Boise.

So I wouldn't hold your breath.

By in United States,

ya a store at west co.! st louis finally gets lego store!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hear ya legomaniac! I thought surely the build a vampire event in the French Quarter was a sure sign that they were considering one for LA.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wish they'd open one closer to my house so I don't have to drive 10 minutes to the one in Pleasanton.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh dang it, I'm sorry. Didn't see it up there. Either way, I'm glad Missouri finally got one... in at least 30 minutes of my house, too!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

We need one in the middle of Canada, everything else is too far away! Wahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Danbury store is still an hour away for me. It's a start, however. I just went to the Natick store yesterday and that's two hours away from my house.

ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION, LEGO? :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

YES, YES, YES! FINALLY, A STORE IN CT!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I live in the greatest place on earth, north of Boston, only 15 minutes from TWO different Lego stores! It is the best.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Open one in AUSTRALIA. We don't have a single one in the entire country!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Northern West Virginian here who is tired of only seeing Lego stores when my work sends me to NY, Baltimore, DC or Cleveland. For the love of all that is plastic, put one in PITTSBURGH!! And that is number 10!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The St. Louis store was announced a couple months back, it kind of slipped through. Glad to hear about the other stores. Does anyone know when they usually announce what dates the store has it's grand opening? My hometown is St. Louis(Moved to DC about 5 months ago) and I had already planned on visiting in May, I just would like to schedule it so I'm in St. Louis for the grand opening, as I've never been to one and I always hoped St. Louis would get a Lego store.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Still waiting for one to open in Vegas so I have something to do while my wife looks at shoes.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Grr! Lucky USA. I really wish there was one in Leicester UK. Just a 15min drive away from me!! My closest is Sheffield which is 1 hour away! Well you never know...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, the Pittsburgh area really needs a Lego store.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wouldn't want to bring religion into this, but God has finally answered my fervent prayers for a store in Utah.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YES! I live just 30 minutes from Fashion Place!!!!! This just made my life.

Gravatar
By in United States,

zeldafanatic15 - It opens in May, said the newspaper article about it. Not sure when in May, though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lego store in Utah? There goes my paycheck. All I can say is it is about time. This was the best news I've had in weeks!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is Great News for ULUG Im super excited!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

BAH, no North Dakota. Although, I figured as much. :P
Congrats to those who are getting a LEGO store!

Gravatar
By in United States,

aqui en monterrey mexico lego tiene una planta de produccion y estamos queremos una tienda

Gravatar
By in Australia,

....Wow another 4 more, and yet Australia can't have one go figure!

Gravatar
By in United States,

More LEGO stores opening is always a good thing.

And everyone wants one just 20 min. away rather than 2+ hours away.... :P

Well, keep buying LEGO. The more money LEGO makes, the more they can expand. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

My wife is already predicting our financial demise now that there is one coming to Utah. Only 30 minutes away. Finally I don't have to pay shipping for S@H stuff, nor wait for TRU to get something so I can have the privilege of paying extra for it. CMF's in abundance and at retail prices! I haven't been this excited in quite some time.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally...a LEGO store in CT!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Lewa99 Lego Maine is so ready for a store, the Maine mall practically has a space all ready for them. LEGO seriously consider a store in Portland, it has all the precursors to a LEGO store - Apple, William Sonoma, Macy's, LUSH, Coach, etc... are already there.

A little off topic, but I'm forming a LUG in southern Maine if any members are interested I have a facebook page set up:

muchos ciudades con plantas de lego no tienen tiendas de lego.
es muy triste

Gravatar
By in United States,

California has the most Lego stores of them all, yet NOT one of them is near me.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Four more...? FOUR more...? First in Utah?!?! What about the first in Australia? :(

Is there even one in the Southern Hemisphere?

Haha, oh well, maybe eventually one will come. Aside from postage, I don't really mind ordering online for exclusives and all. A store is just a convenience thing, and I am usually smart about how I order online when I do, getting the promotions and deals, and getting as much as I can for the postage amount. I wouldn't mind a Pick-A-Brick wall - It'd probably be a great way to splurge money though :)

Congratulations to everyone in those states however! So lucky... :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally one in Utah! I have been pestering TLC for a long time to get one here. I used to have to wait until my trips to California (a 12-hour drive) to visit one. I hope TLC keeps up this expansion around the world so that eventually every LEGO fan will have a store within a reasonable distance.

Gravatar
By in United States,

And I only have a 3 minute drive with no exaggeration, yes! I seem to be the luckiest one here. Easy free parking quick stroll and there. Its not as huge as the one in Downtown Disney which I can get to in 3.5 hours to really overdose, but its still fantastic!

Gravatar
By in Panama,

There is a LEGO store opening in Panama City, Panama soon!.. It will be located at Multiplaza Pacific Mall.

By in Indonesia,

If this was the world of percy jackson, I wonder if LEGO have finally gotten a hydra...;-)

Personally though, I think LEGO should expand outside the very much tapped market that is america and open in other places lke Brazil and Asia.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The USA is tapped for a reason, more LEGO is sold there than probably all LEGO sales in the rest of the world, minus Europe, combined.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Someone mentioned Des Moines, IA at 250,000. I think they look at more than just population. Kansas City just got one recently and they have professional sports teams and a much larger population with KS/MO/suburbs combined than Des Moines.

I've been clamoring for one in Omaha, NE which has over 400,000 people, plus it is within a few hours of Des Moines, and southeastern SD, plus Lincoln, NE at another 250,000.

I don't mind the drive down to KC, but since we rarely get down there I don't spend too much time in that store.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, count me in with those excited for the Utah store!! Half an hour away, easy. Thanks for the news, I will be watching for more details on this one. The only LEGO store I've ever been to before was at Disneyland, CA, too far away to go to any events.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's about time they get a store in Utah I have been waiting years to hear something like this. Finally one that is a twelve min drive instead of a twelve hour drive(California). I will be there opening day for sure!
