A new LEGO Brand Store in Canada

Posted by ,

LEGO Brand StoreA job listing has appeared on LEGO.com for the store manager of another new LEGO Brand Store. The new store will be in Guilford Town Centre.

There's no word yet on when we can expect the store to open, but I would hazard a guess at a soft opening sometime during the Summer with a Grand Opening in September/October.

Is this good news for you? Where are you hoping for a new store?

This is my local store, only 10 miles away :-)

Not forgetting back in the 80's Guildford had a small Lego branded store within the Friary centre!

I read on another site, but it said Guildford, Surrey, British Columbia, not Guildford, Surrey, UK?

I'm still hoping for one in the westfield in Derby.

When you search on the Lego job site it does show up as Guildford, Canada. Not the UK.

Damn it! I had hopes they were going to bring the store to the UK Guildford. Although I think my wallet is thankful.

Melbourne, Australia!!!!! Australia has a large LEGO market and LEGO is a large draw card in Australia, in particular Melbourne, in Victoria.

@Redbullgivesuwind me too!

I read it first thing this morning when it did say Guildford, Surrey UK. I got a little bit excited I must say, I then refreshed the page and Matthew had amended it to say Canada. Dagnammit!!!

^^A Melbourne store would be fantastic - a Lego presence in Australia would be a massive boost! I often get that forgotten feeling :P

^ I agree as well but I seriously doubt that it will happen. Australia's not a priority for TLG and I can see them focusing more on the Asian market before they even consider opening a store here. I still love my Lego and will buy it for my son but I've stopped recommending it to my friends for the simple reason that they don't seem to really care about their fan base out here.

I'm going to have to pass the buck here, I was only posting on request from the boss, I have to admit I didn't really look at the job advert. Huw's the one you need to blame ;-)

Any one have an update on the Glasgow opening date?

^^ Yes, my fault, the email notification was received from @GothamConstructionCo this morning whilst I was away and reading on my phone.

I, and I suspect he too (given he's in the UK) read it as Guildford, UK!

I can confirm that, as there was no store address and the positions offered by TLG are global.
My apologies for any confusion and dashing anyone's hopes.

Great news for us Canadians, but personally, I'm just REALLY excited for the one opening at Yorkdale next month.

I have to say it would be nicer if the stores in the US at least were more spread out. I have to drive almost 3 hours to get to one, Mayfair in Milwaukee. More stores in medium metropolitan areas would be appreciated.

Hooray! That's like 10-15 minutes away! Wait... what's that sound?....Is my wallet screaming?!?

Seems like it's been awhile since a LEGO store has opened in the united states. It seems like most have been popping up in the UK. Right now the American Midwest is without a good store and I think Omaha would be a perfect place to have one.

I'd love to see stores in Melbourne and Sydney - they are ideal places for LEGO stores in Australia.

The Maybird Shopping Centre in Startford, UK. That would definettely bring in more money for LEGO as thousands of people go to the maybird everyday and considering LEGO Stores are either right in the North or all the way down south, we need one in the middle!

GOOD NEWS, Another one for Canada!

I like hearing that, perhaps better prices will eventually follow the surge in new Lego stores.

NEW STORE: Personally I would LOVE to see one in the sunny Okanagan, KELOWNA, BC, Canada.

Kelowna has been considered the California of Canada and home to one happy Brickset News Editor, me.
