LEGO Certified Store in Strasbourg: opening scheduled for the first quarter of 2021

Le LEGO Certified Store of Strasbourg which will be located in the aisles of the shopping center Place des Halles should finally open its doors in the first quarter of 2021. The lease is signed and the 200m store² which should have opened last summer will be located near the Auchan supermarket installed in the center. It is France 3 which communicated the information on its website at the beginning of November.

I remind for all intents and purposes that it will be a LEGO Certified Store, a LEGO licensed store run by the Italian company Percassi. For those who are wondering, this is not a temporary store that would eventually be replaced by a "real" LEGO Store. LEGO manages its network, Percassi takes care of his.

LEGO also indicates for shops of the same type already open elsewhere in France that "... this LEGO® Store is owned and operated by an approved independent third party. Offers, promotions, pricing and inventory are subject to change and the LEGO VIP Loyalty Program will not be available. Gift cards and returns of products ordered on will not be accepted. For more information, please contact the Store directly ..."

Two new upcoming LEGO Certified Stores: Strasbourg and Le Havre

The Italian company Percassi, which manages the LEGO Certified Stores located in France, Italy and Spain, is currently recruiting staff for two new stores which will soon open their doors in Strasbourg and Le Havre.

Le LEGO Certified Store de Strasbourg will be located in the aisles of the shopping center Place des Halles. The one in Le Havre will be installed in the aisles of the shopping center Vauban docks.

We remember the initiative launched in 2018 by LEGO fans who were actively campaigning for the opening of a LEGO Store in Strasbourg and which was then relayed by a local elected official via a letter addressed to the group's headquarters in Billund. The installation of a LEGO Certified Store is probably only a half-victory, but it's still better than nothing.

With these two new licensed stores which will join those of Dijon, Rosny-sous-Bois, Toulouse and Créteil, the French territory will have 6 LEGO Certified Stores and 9 official stores.

Please note, as LEGO indicates, these shops set up by the Percassi company are not spaces directly managed by the brand: "... These LEGO® stores are owned and operated by approved independent third parties. Offers, promotions, prices and inventory may vary. Also, the LEGO VIP loyalty program will not be available. Returns of products ordered from the online store will be refused. For more information, please contact these stores directly ..."

Rennes Cesson shopping center: A LEGO Workshop opens its doors at the end of November

While waiting for a hypothetical LEGO Store in Rennes in 2025 (see this article), it is a temporary store that will open its doors by the end of November in the aisles of the shopping center Carrefour Rennes-Cesson (La Rigourdière Activity Zone, 35510 Cesson-Sévigné).

As for Saint-Brieuc or Bourges, it will be a LEGO Workshop set up by the company Epicure Studio, a design and event consulting agency under contract with LEGO France.

The prices charged in these LEGO Workshops are similar to those of products on the shelves of official LEGO Stores. On the other hand, no VIP program in these temporary shops, but the LEGO Workshop in Bourges allows in particular to obtain a reduction of 10% on the prices charged on presentation of the VIP card.
