The lines were long, but the excitement among kids and adults alike was big for the grand opening of the new Bricks & Minifigs store, nestled in the Berkshire Centre at Vickers Drive and Academy Boulevard. An hour’s drive from the nearest official LEGO Store in South Denver, the franchised aftermarket shop invited the public in to quench their thirst for all things LEGO.
Bricks & Minifigs offers new and used, contemporary and retired sets as well as large pools of individual pieces and bricks to purchase in bulk quantities. The store also invited contestants from FOX’s LEGO Masters TV show — Corey from Season 1 and Jen from Season 2 — for pictures and autographs. Alongside the windows sat builder Julian Drake Evenfeather’s specialty display of Star Trek-themed ships, including a large Deep Space Nine model. Their used sets were on sale behind the counter, displaying many of the newest and largest LEGO has released. The Titanic (set 10294) was on display, but the Eiffel Tower (set 10307) was not. At least, not yet.
The store held drawings for door prizes, gave away exclusive minifigs to early arriving customers, and was filled to capacity the entire time Sixty35 was on-site. The line of excited LEGO fans still stretched halfway down the shopping center hours after the 10 a.m. opening.
