W.A.’s first LEGO® Certified Store is now open!
LEGO® awesomeness is spread over a massive 343 square meters! This 'must visit' store can be found near David Jones on the Ground Floor of AMP Karrinyup Centre.
Naturally, kids will get excited over the latest LEGO® sets and parents can plan ahead for Christmas.
Inside, we're looking forward to seeing custom-built brick features that draw inspiration from local icons and landmarks.
Richard Facioni, Executive Chairman, Alquemie Group said, “Together with our partners at The LEGO® Group, we are proud to continue to extend the presence of LEGO® Certified Stores into Western Australia. “The new store will capitalise on the enduring appeal of the LEGO® brand and bring a world-class retail concept to WA. We look forward to meeting our loyal, growing community of brick fans of all ages in Perth.”
