Sears will be continuing with more closures this holiday season including the location at King of Prussia Mall, the largest mall by retail lease area in the United States. Those living in Michigan and Indiana will feel more of these closures as many stores there would be closing down. Over 50 stores will be closed down and liquated. There’s a store closing list available, but it isn’t 100% accurate according to a Sears representative.
They’ve had many changes in the past few years, including conversions of Kmart Grocery Super Centers to regular Kmarts. Ironically, Wal-Mart is converting most of its stores to Super Centers with groceries. Some of the stores will be leased out to other retailers including Primark, an European clothing retailer according to WSJ. Perhaps, renting their stores out may be their only way to survive. With these closures, its definitely going to reduce the amount of LEGO deals available with fewer locations. Hopefully, if you are living near a store that’s closing, you’ll be able to find some good liquating LEGO deals. Forum member Nepenthe7 reports that his local Kmart started the liquidation with 30% off.

This may be the last sale for LEGO Bricktober 2014 (there may be a week 5 like previous years, but the gift is usually a bit lacking). So far, for the past few weeks, the sales have been pretty disappointing. This week starting from Friday, October 24 to October 30, it does look a bit more promising, especially with the new Raccoon LEGO Minifigure! Thanks to forum members dulait and mobilelinkage for the heads up and TheOmniarch for contacting us with the news.
LEGO Bricktober Sale
-Free 5002145 LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy Super Heroes Rocket Raccoon Minifigure with $30 spent on LEGO Building sets
-Free LEGO Friends Jungle Boat polybag with $30 spent on LEGO Friends
-Free LEGO Town Hal Mini Building with $75 spent on LEGO Building sets
-10x More Air Miles when you spend $30 or more on LEGO Movie, City, Agents
As a reminder, don’t forget that this Saturday, October 25th, you can join in to build a free LEGO Bat Signal (this occurred last week at Toys R Us USA stores). Build is while quantities last and it seemed quite popular down in the States.

The Wal-Mart Canada e-Commerce site (with shopping capabilities) was launched just around the time when Target was about to make its way to Canada. It sold almost nothing on their site to now a very wide selection of items. From $0.99 shipping to free shipping on orders above $35 and now free shipping with no minimum purchase, they’re really going at it!
Forum member hatcher now informs us that Walmart.ca is now carrying hard to find/online exclusive sets. These include modular buildings, Death Star, Winter Village Market, Batman Arkham Asylum and lots more! This is definitely going to give more competition to Toys R Us Canada as they used to be the only ones that sold exclusives (aside from LEGO). Hopefully, we’ll see some discounts like gift card offers soon.
Now, when will Target get their e-Commerce site up where you can actually buy stuff?

The LEGO Creator 40107 Holiday Part 2 Set for 2014 Christmas has been revealed, thanks to Brickset. Like previous years, the set would be a promotional item starting on Black Friday (November 28
22nd, 2014). It sure isn’t a “part 2″ of the current part 1 toy shop 40106 set being given away right now when you spend $99/€55 at LEGO Shop at Home & LEGO Brand Stores. Not an extension of the toy shop, but part 2 would be an ice rink with a slide.

- Double LEGO VIP Points on all orders (Oct 1-31)
- FREE Exclusive Holiday Set 1 of 2 Toy Shop 40106 with purchases of $99/€55 or more (North America: Oct 1-31; Europe: Oct 15-31)
- Shop Now: USA | Canada

If you missed the free LEGO Batman Bat-Signal build today at Toys R Us, forum member tred912 has kindly posted a copy of the instructions. The pieces don’t appear to be that unique aside from printed bat plate so you can easily make this yourself.
