I've heard rumours about a store coming to Guildford Mall in Surrey, BC, Canada, but no confirmation of any kind.

Surrey, BC (Guilford) should be well before Christmas late summer either August or Sept. There's confirmation on the Lego Brand Retail Site, just no opening date yet.

I can confirm the Surrey, BC (Guilford Mall) store will be open with a "soft open" when the expansion of the mall opens on August 28th. The Grand Opening will be in late Sept. with a date to be announced very soon.

Surrey store would be 2nd one at lower mainland. I wonder how crowd would it be at grand opening event? The horrible imagines from last year second day grand opening event was still clearly pop out from my mind.

I am not sure if there will be a new LEGO Store in Palmdale, CA inside AV Mall since there's two stores closed near to the food court which are General Toys and Winging It (Which is not located near at Macy's). And it looks like there's another one that is closed right next to Old Navy and Sears which is the arcade.

This is a rumor, but I hope it will be true. If there's a LEGO Store in Palmdale, CA it will be the first LEGO store in Antelope Valley then they will offer a monthly build which is either a jetplane or a space rocket since both Lancaster and Palmdale are home of the aerospace. I don't if that LEGO Store will offer a special monthly build that is a mini B2 Spirit or an F117A Stealth Fighter because LEGO have a policy that will not do this because its considered a military vehicle or aircraft.

Sorry there's no LEGO Store opening in Lancaster, CA because there's no mall in that area.

Not much profit in Asia with all the counterfeits running rampant.

Oh! :eek: That's the reason why they don't have LEGO store in Asia because of that since there's already a LEGOLAND in Malaysia.

It doesn't specify if there are any promo giveaways in the write-up, so I'm not sure there are any. The US stores usually have a kids-sized T-Shirt on Friday, the micro-scale LEGO Store on Saturday and an exclusive set of three minifigures on Sunday.

It was actually listed on the back of the May LEGO Store Calendar. I'll try to post more often in this topic and the main news page when I notice.
