@ PeppermintWhiskers: no, LEGO shops often are open for a while before it is the Grand Opening.

Any confirmation on this, since I didn't find any news on the official Lego Stores page (the Belgian store isn't even listed on it yet)? Just like to know for sure before I make the long drive on a Saturday morning.

@ VadimD

I can confirm this. I've received an official flyer from the shop with this info.

Went today, got the exclusive pack of minifigs by spending more than 30€ (bought the BTTF DeLorean!). Friday you get a t-shirt (meh) and saturday an exclusive mini-LEGO store when spending over 30€.
First 200 customers get something else extra (mini bag of Chima in my case).

Thanks for the update Vince. Now I'm sure the trip will be worth it Saturday :)

The minifig pack was a disappointment. There wasn't an exclusive pack made for the shop in Wijnegem, but instead the pack 5000023 has been given away to the first 300 customers. I was hoping for something more exclusive.

Yesterday the Han Solo (Hoth) minifg (5001621) has been given away to the first 300 customers.

Went this morning to the Antwerp store.
Was at the location at about 0800 .. I know, way to early, so I went for a breakfast @ Panos, by the time I got back, about 10 people had arrived ...
And it would get better .. by the time the store opened, the row really was huge ...
Anyway,

At the time I got to the booth, they gave the mini Lego store (3300003) for purchases over 30 EUR and I also got the Chima Ewar minifigure on whatever vehicle (30250).
For purchases over 55 EUR, a pick-a-brick pliable carton box was given as well.

Didn't dare wandering around too long as I didn't want to get lynched by the waiting masses on the other side of the door :)

I got at the store at 8.50, a que of about 60 people were there.

I bought the BTTF set, 2 cups of PaB and 3 polybags. Really happy with the free Store set!

Arrived at 8.40, indeed about 50 people there already. Store personnel handled it pretty well. I just hope the people at the end of the line got what they came for.
