The store is now open (it had its soft opening April 13th). A soft opening is where the store is open and operational and allows staff to work out any issues and get everything up to speed for the official Grand Opening weekend which is slated for May 4th-6th, 2012.
Vancouver will be getting its first LEGO store, the fourth to open up in Canada. According to the Oakridge Centre website, the store is slated to open sometime in the Spring of 2012. It will be located in the West Galleria, next to Safeway. Fans young and old will be in LEGO heaven as you’ll find anything and everything to do with LEGO here. No more hunting for your Star Wars LEGO fix.
This is all part of the ongoing shift in retail that is happening at Oakridge. They now have an Apple store, Tiffany’s, and soon be home to the first Crate & Barrel in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
I wonder if they’ll have a LEGO Johnny Canuck at the store.
