As many retailers have been giving the go-ahead to reopen their stores across the UK from tomorrow, a number of LEGO® selling stores will be back in action. Almost all LEGO Brand Retail stores will start to reopen from tomorrow. Of course, the in-store experience will be vastly different, with interactive elements no longer available, product touching off the cards and a limited number of people in stores at any one time. It’s also expected that staff will be wearing protective gear and tills will now have screens. Stock ranges may also be limited with many of the newest sets not yet available in LEGO stores. Check here to see if and when your local store is open, as opening times may also have changed.
Smyths Toys have been offering a click and collect service for a few days now but will once again allow customers into stores from tomorrow. Expect certain changes to how you shop in there but new LEGO stock should be readily available and can be checked online before you may the trip. The Entertainer has also been offering C&C but is set to allow people into stores next week as well.
The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre store in Manchester will reopen from June 17th, where you should be able to find the new LEGO NINJAGO Ride set towards the end of next week, early the following week. Other shopping restrictions may of apply.
Finally, there will be numerous independent toy shops reopening from next week, they may not be the first place you think about heading to get your LEGO fix, but they could really do with your help to survive these troubling times. Even if you only pick up a small LEGO set, you could really help these much needed little stores to continue into the future.
Please note stores in Scotland and Wales are not included in these reopening plans. You can still shop online at LEGO.com and via the websites of other retailers. Continue to stay safe and be mindful of others around you. No amount of LEGO is worth getting sick or spreading anything to others.
