It has been a long time coming but New Zealand will be getting their first LEGO Certified Store later this year at the Westfield Newmarket mall!
The Alceon group also owns the LEGO Certified Store in Sydney at Westfield Bondi Junction shopping center and the new store in New Zealand should include the same features like the brand ribbon, pick-a-brick wall as well as large LEGO sculptures of New Zealand icons.
“We are delighted to bring this leading global retail experience to Auckland and are confident that Lego fans of all ages will respond very positively to the creativity, innovation and excitement that are hallmarks of Lego Certified Stores,” ~ Richard Facioni, executive director at Alceon Group.
This is great news as it is about time that New Zealand has a standalone LEGO store and hopefully there will be some cool store opening exclusives when the mall opens in time for Christmas.
