Bricks & Minifigs Plano is part of a national franchise across the U.S. and has won awards within the corporate brand as a whole.
Opened by Andrea Klima and proudly woman-owned, their local Plano store has been open for over 8 years, since September 2015. When they opened, they were the first of the Bricks & Minifigs toy stores in the DFW area, the second in Texas, and the 13th in the country.
They sell new LEGO sets, used LEGO sets, individual LEGO bricks, and LEGO minifigures. Their items are sold to them from the public, so their store offers the ultimate concept of recycling Lego! Their biggest selling items are mini-figures, (the small people that come in LEGO sets). The store is retail only and focuses solely on that without offering classes or parties.
Look out for monthly promotions which are posted on their Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. You can also sign up for their emails. Weekly they share their promotions and sales events.
On Monday nights at 7 pm, most weeks Andrea hosts Cyber Funday on Bricks & Minifigs Plano’s Facebook page which is a live sales event. Items in the store are put on sale anywhere from 20%-70% off, only during the live stream.
