Talk about exciting...I'll have access to the PAB wall in 15 minutes instead of 4-5 hours. My wallet is going to take a hit but I'm stoked!

Awesome! I have been waiting for this for some time. I hope my fellow AFOLS at Gateway LUG are as happy as I am!

Ha! I was just coming on to post this as well! I cannot freaking wait! I've been wanting one of those Lego Sets that is a lego store that they offer at openings.

There was one remaining space available at West County Mall and they grabbed it. I would assume they would have gone out to Chesterfield if necessary but this is a much better spot and is centrally located! I was jealous of KC when theirs opened up earlier this year but am pleased that Lego decided to open up another Missouri location so quickly.

Great news, Lego, Apple and Barnes & Noble under one roof, what more could one need?

Hope I can find a parking spot! :tongue:

I consider it a shame they didn't go out to Chesterfield - but this is awesome news anyway, for a little while at least I'll have a PaB wall near me! Just hope I'm there when it opens... (at first glance it (May) seems like perfect timing, but my schedule is sure to get messed up/revised...)

I'm glad to hear they're opening one in St. Louis. I'm from central Iowa, so the store in KC is still the closest, but I'm happy to at least have another in the region.

Hi Amy; congrats on the job and thanks for giving us the heads up here on Eurobricks.

Personally, I've been living in Beijing for awhile but am originally from St. Louis and will be relocating back there soon.  It's exciting to know that there will be a Lego store there!

Keep the PAB stocked with choice stuff, will ya?

Thanks, Joe

Kansas City is still the closest to me, but when we drive back to Indiana, there could be a potential stop. Although I may also stop at the Indy store, so I can have lots of choices!

Awesome news. Good luck with the position!
