When local business owner, Derek Sorrells, is traveling, he is constantly searching for ideas on what other cities have that Wichita does not. That’s why, he will soon be opening Let’s Go Build.
It’s set to be Wichita’s first dedicated Lego store. According to Sorrells, “Legos take me back to my childhood, and there are so many new sets now. For kids, for adults, and everyone in between.”
Let’s Go Build will be an authorized Lego reseller. They will also buy and sell used kits, pieces and mini-figures.
The new retail store will be located at Greenwich Place at 2684 N Greenwich Suite 500 which is next to Freezing Moo, Verizon and Alberto’s Cafe and across from Old Navy. Currently, the plan is to open in October.
One of the major differences between Let’s Go Build and a traditional Lego store is that customers will be able to buy individual mini-figures and bricks. They’ll also be able to trade in their older kits or just random pieces for cash or store credit.
It’s not just a store to buy Legos. The 2,400-sq. ft. space will also have room for birthday parties, STEM classes (for public and home school students) and stop-motion video classes. STEM is science, technology, engineering, and math. Lego has built a great collection of lessons that Let’s Go Build will utilize, allowing students to learn and apply their knowledge using Lego bricks.
They will also have master builders in for events that will show their skills to others; imagine a how-to event for those that want to dive into the more advanced kits.
Stay tuned for our first look inside the new store when it opens. Until then, you can follow Let’s Go Build on Facebook.
