If you’re in to blocks you’ll be happy to hear that LEGO is coming to Canada. The construction toy manufacturer Lego Group is opening its first Canadian store in Calgary’s Chinook Centre, the world’s largest enclosed shopping mall.
The Lego Group, with 53 stores worldwide, will be holding its official grand opening on July 16 to 18. The store will be on the upper level just off the food court in a 2,100-square-foot retail space.
According to Michael Kehoe, an Alberta-based retail specialist with Fairfield Commercial Real Estate Inc. The Lego Group’s selection of Chinook Centre as its first Canadian location is further proof the Calgary market is the new “beachhead” for international retail brands entering the Canadian market.
