Brand store to open in Austria

Posted by ,

Brand stores are opening up left, right and centre in the USA and even in the UK but expansion into new countries has been slow.

However, today, LEGO has advertised the store manager's job for a new store in Vienna, which will be the first one to open in Austria.

Any Austrians in the house?

(Thanks LostInTranslation for the news).

LEGO must be working overtime to keep all these stores stocked up! I suppose there will be a glut of sale items in a couple of years time, when the 'rent' comes up for renewal and LEGO decide to pull out due to the high cost of rent, wouldn't be the first time they've done it !

Good news! At last a LEGO store in Austria. First thing I'm going to visit the next time I'm in Vienna.

Fine!

At the various ToysRUs-Shops around here there is little choice while the range of LEGO-sets keeps on becoming wider and wider.

Unfortunately ToysRUs ruined a lot of toy-shops, which were around before. But they would not have had the capacity to cope with the full LEGO Programme 2013, 14, 15 . . .

So that is the natural walk of things.

The new shop will be located in the biggest shopping center in Austria in the southern outskirts of Vienna (Shopping City Süd) - that is also "where the money lives" - that is what "Vösendorf" means.

@ shop manager: good luck! CU!

Finally, the first store to be located in my country, and even in my town! ;-)

BTW, the advertisement for the store manager mentions two different locations: Vienna-Purkersdorf (which is in the very west of Vienna) and Vienna-Vösendorf (which is in the very, very south, a bit outside the Vienna boundaries). I guess it will be in Vösendorf, which has a very, very, very large shopping mall called "SCS Shopping City Süd" (the second largest in Europe, I think) - just 20 minutes from my home ...

Hmm, that means we will get two stores in Vienna!? Auhof Center and SCS?

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Definitely not, although that would be exciting. SCS will make it.
