LEGO Certified Store coming to Canberra

Our nation’s capital – Canberra in case you didn’t know – is getting its very own LEGO Certified Store.

Sydney Certified LEGO Store. Canberra still being built.

There is no opening date included in the announcement but a job ad for a retail store manager has a commencement date of May 21st, so it’ll obviously be around then. If you are looking for a job then you’ll find the listing here.

The store will be located at the Canberra Centre and it will be over 250sqm.

The store will feature all the usual inclusions:

  • A large, wall mounted mosaic and a world-first 3D model of a local landmark – made by the Southern Hemisphere’s only LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught or ‘Brickman’;
  • Pick a Brick Wall – grab a cup and fill it with your choice of LEGO bricks and elements, with endless combinations of shapes and colours to choose from;
  • Build a Minifigure™ Tower – mix and match from a wide selection of heads, hair, tops, bottoms and accessories to create a bespoke LEGO Minifigure™ collection;
  • Digital Box – scan almost any LEGO boxed set and watch it come to life in 3D, live on the wall-mounted screen in-store;
  • Brick Specialists: in-store experts can help brick fans of all ages select the perfect set, whether it’s a special gift, or a treat for the family’s resident LEGO fan.

    !!!!!! What more can I say, except “you beauty”. Been waiting for this since they started opening stores here, it seems they’ve finally got around to the important one ;) .

    All right! Would put in an application for store manager but not sure if they’d match my cushy government management salary (they certainly wouldn’t match the superannuation contribution).

    I am surprised they haven’t done anything in Perth yet. There have been rumors but nothing concrete which is surprising given all the AFOLs and other LEGO fans in that town.
