We we're the first to mention the likelihood of a LEGO corporate retail store coming to Spokane some time ago. And, we have now received confirmation that LEGO is coming and will open in November, just in time for the Holiday shopping season. The new 3,003 SF store will be on to ground floor of River Park Square in Downtown Spokane. The store will have a street level entry facing W. Main.
"The LEGO store at River Park Square will deliver an immersive LEGO Brand experience with a wide product assortment, hands on building experiences for our customers, exclusive promotions and fun events held in store with our amazing staff" said Travis Blue, vice president of Americas brand retail stores, the LEGO group. John Gavin, commercial asset manager for Cowles Real Estate adds "This new LEGO store is an excellent addition to our combination of local shops and primer national brands. LEGO has fans across all ages and does a superior job of of making stores fun, innovative and engaging"

The new store will feature a wide range of LEGO products including exclusive items sold only at LEGO.COM and in LEGO stores. For more follow http://lego.com/stores for info and updates on the store.
Of note, the store planned for River Park Square is a corporate owned retail store. Earlier this year a locally owned and operated LEGO resale shop opened in the Garland District buy the name of Brick Buy Brick.
