I find it hard to believe that a smaller market like Portland Oregon has had a Lego store for, what? Three years or so? While the 4th largest city in the US (Houston) only just got one. I wonder why they chose to do that?
I don't entirely understand Lego's logic either.
They have two stores in Massachusetts 40 minutes apart from one another, but absolutely nothing in New Hampshire, Vermont, or Maine. They used to have two stores a few minutes apart, but they closed one of those. A Burlington/Williston, VT store would be more convenient for people from northern New York to Maine and even up into Montreal, Canada.
Ohio needs a store too.
