Members of WAMALUG descended on the new store and scarfed up commemorative Duplo bricks, admired the exhaustive selection of new product, and marveled at the Pick-a-Brick wall with 120 elements.

Terry Prosper’s minifig takes a breather between two of the commemorative Duplo bricks.

Margaret enters the store, on the lower level of the regional mall (also home to the Apple store).
