    I wish they would stop opening them in MASSIVE malls near Boston and open some up in CT, RI and Western Mass.

    Seriously, this is just getting ridiculous. The US keeps getting new Lego stores. Come on now, Canada should be getting a couple by now. This has gone far beyond not-fair.

    I agree with David4, put one in the PRovidence Place Mall or Wrenthem OUtlets or Emerald Square mall. Im tired of driving an hour plus to get to one. THat is why I go barely once a year.

    my first comment on this blog (which I love btw)…okay so yall know how a while ago they posted the link to a survey LEGO put out for us to participate in? & how in one section, you could write in your own option…well I did (several lol)! One of them, I asked that they put a LEGO store in the Central United States! I live in Texas and am quite far away from any stores (that I’m aware of)…

    So I get on this blog tonight…and what do I see? 3 LEGO stores in the Central United States! WHOOT! The Frisco one is about an hr away & the Dallas one is little bit closer! I’m so excited!!! Nannan…I’m new to commenting on this site, but I just might be there for the opening as well in Frisco!!!

    Any Idea when the Cinci store is opening. You better check with Lego there are alot of empty construction sites in that area as well as Liens on the contracters and sub contracters that are building around Kenwood Mall. There is a Large crane that hasn’t been operated in awhile and it swings over I-75 when the wind blows.

    Sheesh, LEGO needs to learn learn how to write less duplicative announcements. I just spent 15 minutes reformatting that post so it didn’t take up half the front page (not your fault, Nannan).

    Glad more places are getting LEGO stores, but don’t forget to support your online LEGO resources by buying LEGO through sites like MOCpages, Brickset, and TBB, too. ;-)

    Thanks for the reformat, but the exclusive set differs from each store. I went ahead and made it generic

  8. Andrew

    ^ Oops, I missed that in my annoyance. Sorry! :-( I’ll dig up the exclusive sets and add them back to each section.

    @Nannan: First off want to apologize for the way I acted before. I may have assumed something that I am 99%, but not 100% sure of. Just because I have never seen it myself I was quick to assume. I will be up there this weekend! Maybe you can share your secret in confidence with me then? heh…

    I’ll be checking things out Friday a.m. (I work 5 minutes away) and taking my son there Saturday a.m. to help Dan the LEGO man build some R2D2 bricks. Hope to get to meet some of you there!

    How do you guys think I feel. I live in CT and Lego has there corporate hq here in enfeild. They should either open up there private store or just put a brand new one in CT. Man my state sucks.
