Syracuse, NY (JUNE 17, 2019) – The LEGO® Group, one of the world’s best-known toy manufacturers, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of a new LEGO® store this Fall at Destiny USA in Syracuse. The store features a kid-chic design, innovative displays and consumer-friendly play areas that deliver an engaging, entertaining and fun experience for families of all ages.
“The LEGO store at Destiny USA will deliver an immersive LEGO Brand experience with a wide LEGO product assortment, hands on building and play and fun promotions and events,” says Kurt Rachdorf, Head of Americas Brand Retail Stores, LEGO Group. “Shoppers and children will encounter friendly and engaging staff, unique LEGO opportunities like our Pick and build wall and Build a minifigure experiences, and plenty of creativity and inspiration.”

LEGO stores feature an assortment of product covering nearly every square inch of space and each store features three key design components. The “Pick & Build Wall”, by far the most popular store feature, offers the option to hand pick and purchase specific LEGO bricks and elements in a variety of colors and shapes in bulk. The “Living Room” is an interactive play area prominently positioned in the center of the store, giving consumers a chance to get “hands-on, minds-on” with LEGO products. Finally, a “Brand Ribbon” runs the circumference of the store, featuring LEGO® model displays.
Guests will find a full selection of LEGO products and branded merchandise for children ages 2 and up, including DUPLO® sets, exciting themes such as NINJAGO, Friends and CITY and popular licensed items such as LEGO Star Wars ™, LEGO Disney Princess and LEGO Super Heroes.
