... and I'm going up north tomorrow morning. Dang.

I'll go next Saturday when they have the store model on purchases of $75+.

Very excited for this store. We also just got Target, which hopefully means better sales from the competition (TRU/WalMart).

Well good for Canadians, but here in Europe they dont build Lego stores so often, i must drive 600+ kilometers to the nearest Lego sotre :(

And we cant order from Lego shop online too :(

This will be my nearest Lego store! (Though it is about 600km away from me matej123! :) )
Will definitely check it out next time I am in Edmonton!

When will they open a store in Montreal?

My closest store is in Minneapolis (720 km), and that's across the border. Otherwise, it's Calgary (1,330 km).

TLG is putting Canadian Brand Stores in population centres. Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Surrey all have one. Toronto has THREE. Heck, even Copenhagen only has one. Obviously, they can reap in more sales from more people. Put a store in each of the provincial capitals, then branch out to a store in each major city. Until then, I'll have to be content ordering online.

It's nice to finally see a Lego store in Edmonton, and this will be the only retail space where the big sets are actually stocked. I was in the store yesterday, it was pretty busy then again it was a Saturday. I'll be there for the mini Lego store promo on Saturday, it's going to be a mad house!

It would be nice to have a LEGO store in Winnipeg. We have a local Lego Users Group that would be estatic if one opened here.

I was able to visit quickly today while on a layover in Edmonton. It seems to have the greatest amount of floor space of any Canadian store to date (yes, I've been lucky enough to visit all of them so far). It carries full lines of all the themes (unlike some of the smaller "condensed" stores) and the extra floor space really helps minimize the impact of crowds in the store (where DO all these kids come from at 1:30pm on a Monday... shouldn't they be in school?)
Overall, another bright, beautiful store which will make the northern AB fans very happy! Now if only the new Surrey store is that large...
