There was an announcement that a 2,300 LEGO store would be coming to the mall a few months back and during COVID-19, they have been able to really work on it and get it moving.

The LEGO Store is opening up in Buffalo this Friday at 9 am inside the Galleria Mall, per the Walden Galleria's tweet on Wednesday morning.  There are 105 in the United States and Buffalo is finally getting theirs. The Mall hours are going to be back to normal hours starting Friday. 

You can of course buy LEGOS, but it's also going to be quite the playground and in-store experience. According to Walden Galleria's site there will be four big things that will be great for the kids:

  • Brick Specialists – Whether you’re picking out a gift, looking for the latest set, or bringing in your LEGO fan for a special treat, Brick Specialists can help you find a set that’s the perfect fit.
  • Pick & Build Wall – choose the bricks and elements you want in all different shapes and colors. So grab a cup and fill it up with whatever pieces you choose!
  • Digital Box – where you can scan almost any boxed LEGO set and see the model come to life in 3D! There’s no better way to test drive a set than seeing the finished product right before your eyes.
  • Hands-on Building – in-store play opportunities, including free build challenges and events each month.
  • Build a Mini Tower – where you can mix and match from a wide selection of minifigure bottoms, tops, heads, hair pieces and accessories to customize your own minifigures.

Where will it be located? 

You will want to go in at the Dick's entrance and turn left when you get to the main concourse and it will be on the right hand side.
