READY, STEADY, BUILD! First South Australian LEGO® Certified Store to Open in Adelaide in 2020
Alceon Group and LEGO Australia and New Zealand today announced the first AG LEGO® Certified Store will open in South Australia in the coming months. The new store will open ahead of Christmas, with the grand opening date to be announced in the coming weeks.
Located at Westfield Marion on level 2, the 197sqm AG LEGO® Certified Store will be a multi-sensory retail experience set to inspire local brick fans of all ages.
The new store will incorporate signature LEGO® retail features including a Pick A Brick Wall, a Build-a-Minifigure playstation and a ‘digital box’ where almost any LEGO® boxed set can be scanned and come to life. Additional custom features include a large brick wall-mounted mosaic and an over-size 3D model inspired by South Australian icons.
The new AG LEGO Certified Store will have a wide selection of LEGO® sets, including hard to find and limited edition sets, activities and events only available in store.
Richard Facioni, Executive Director, Alceon, said:
“LEGO® Certified Stores are renowned globally for creativity and imagination, as one of the world’s most loved brands meets a custom built retail concept. We look forward to bringing this leading, experiential retail concept to South Australia and showcasing the creative potential of the world famous LEGO brick.”
Other iconic LEGO® Certified Stores are located in New York, London, Shanghai, Denmark, Dubai, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.
Scentre Group Director of Leasing & Retail Solutions, John Papagiannis said:
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the first LEGO® Certified Store in South Australia to Westfield Marion. We know this will come as exciting news to our customers; further reinforcing our commitment to delivering a retail experience that meets the interests and needs of our community. The new store at Westfield Marion marks the fourth LEGO® Certified store within the Australian Westfield Living Centre portfolio, following successful openings at Westfield Doncaster, Westfield Bondi Junction and Westfield Chermside.”
