We Are Dublin Town
Media Release: DublinTown Welcomes The LEGO Store to Dublin City Centre
- Thu 10 February, 2022
DublinTown warmly welcomes the official announcement today (9th February) that The LEGO Store is coming to the Grafton Street area. This vote of confidence will add to Dublin city centre’s family appeal and will significantly augment the district’s diverse and engaging offer. The city was challenged during the pandemic but now as we emerge into the post pandemic world, we have a real chance to re-imagine the city as one of Europe’s key 21st century destinations. A core strength of Dublin city has always been its appeal to all and its ability to provide unequalled opportunities to shop, socialise, meet friends, and be entertained.
Simone Sweeney, Vice President of Global LEGO Retail Development, said “The new LEGO Store will be amongst some of the biggest and best brands in Dublin, in a shopping district loved by many local families and visitors alike. Dublin has been part of LEGO Retail’s expansion strategy for many years.”
Today’s announcement by LEGO further strengthens the city’s appeal, particular around the Grafton Street area and the surrounding streets and has raised cheers from neighbouring businesses.
DublinTown very much look forward to supporting LEGO with their summer opening.
