New US Store in Nashville - Coming Spring 2012
It's still a little while away, but when the Opry Mills Mall (Nashville, TN) reopens next spring, LEGO will be joining the retailers on the site. This will be the first Lego Brand Store in Tennessee.
The Opry Mills Mall closed as a result of damage caused by the May 2010 Tennessee Floods; there has been extensive rebuilding work, and the mall is due to officially reopen on 29th March 2012, with a Grand Reopening celebration planned for May 2012.
LEGO should start looking for staff for the new store in the next few months; if you're interested in applying, keep an eye on the 'LEGO Jobs' website, in the 'Retail Jobs' area, as that seems to be where they are first advertised.
Thanks to 'Gandalf1' for reminding us about this news; we were aware of it months ago, but it seemed like a very long way off at the time :-)
