Ok, I searched for this discussion and I am a bit surprised that is doesn't already exist so feel free to move it to where it needs to go if it already exists. Did not see a discussion for lego store events/sales.
So I thought I would go ahead and share this survey response that I sent to Lego from one of those receipts:
I was there something of six years ago when the store opened and for the next two years, I continued to go to that store quite often. As time went on I got to know some of the staff there and one member, in particular, was an employee by the name of ______. Through a common interest in the Lego fan community, we were able to talk about various Brickfairs and brick conventions and through this was able to get to know each other. It was always great having the chance to talk about all things Lego related.
Now with that being said, it has been quite some time since I returned to this store. I would pop in every once and awhile to see what was going on or to grab some kind of deal or promotion but it was quite rare for me to return to the store.
A few weeks ago I stopped back in to pick up some CMF and while standing around, ______ approached me and struck up a conversation. At first, I will admit I had no idea who he was but eventually conversations from six years back I began to remember who he was.
I usually don't talk about lego to anyone and haven't attended a brick convention in years but when we started talking it was really cool to talk to someone in person once more about the plastic toy. I had completely forgotten about it all but the fact that ______ was able to remember me over the past six years sticks out to me as something truly great. The community is something amazing and I am still to this day quite surprised that I ran into him and he recognized me. Through this, I know that I will have to stop by the Lego Store much more often as the sense of community that you can get from that place is something else that I can't say most other stores can match with.
I left out the name here just for the sake of privacy. Thought I would make this post to say for anyone who is on the edge of stopping into a store, I would say to absolutely make the trip to one.
