The store in Utrecht (first store in the Netherlands) is opening on October 10th

Opening event for the Netherlands is planned for November.

I imagine this might have to do with the opening of the Flagship store in Amsterdam.

Utrecht store indeed is opening next week. (10-10)

Why is there nothing mentioned about the Utrecht Lego store which opening the 10th

^ Because it's not near me and until you mentioned it I didn't know.

One month ago the BBC reported TLG "planned to open 160 new stores this year globally - 16 of them in the UK."
I know about the new stores for Birmingham and Southampton, but that leaves another 14 new stores planned for the UK in the next year. Have you any idea where any of these 14 are going to be located?

No idea...

@Brodie - That language is ambiguous but I believe the report means that there will be sixteen stores in the UK, after the Southampton and Birmingham branches have opened.

Oh, Southampton, UK - not Southampton NY, lol. Whoops, actually thought this was near-ish me.

Why is there no LEGO stores in Australia? There is one across the country

I will be heading along - can’t wait to soak up the store opening atmosphere, catch up with some people I already know and meet some of the other Bricksetters face to face! Leicester Square, Brighton and Cardiff have all been too difficult to get to regularly for me and anyone in Dorset so it’s so much more within reach - even at still a 45 min trip one way! It beats at least 2.5 hrs one way.

I may likely see some of you at STEAM this weekend too

Heading to STEAM on Sunday

^ & ^^ See you both there. I'll most likely be watching my balls on the GBC circuit.

I hope to be there, its just 20 mins from me.

For some reason, the Southern Daily Echo has said it open on the Thurs 17th October

What day are you heading their Huw? I assume on the Saturday?

Congratulations to everyone living in the area close to the store :D

Hope we are getting one in Norway one day as well! Since the BAM section have started stoking unique animal pieces I would probably spend a fortune there :P

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@huw do you know if they're doing a soft opening before? I heard a rumour this was going to happen...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^maybe that was what the Echo was meaning about a 17th October opening then?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I noticed same re opens 16th Oct but looks like the Grand Opening is 26th ..
