[FR] Has anyone been to the Les Halles Lego Store?

I was wondering how different/alike it is to other company stores and if there are any exclusives...

    Not yet, I missed out on going as I ran out of time on my last visit..  Going again next month to Paris so hopefully will have a little more time as will be staying closer to the centre.

    I have.  It's nice.  Avoid on a Saturday as the place is crazy-busy.  The staff is super friendly.  It's very, very convenient as it is above the Châtelet-les-Halles metro & RER hub.  Nice sculptures outsides.  It's located inside the "Canopée" (Canopy) so it's not immediately visible from the street.  But at least it's not in the basement which can be crowded and difficult to navigate.  I'm very grateful not having to go all the way to Levallois or Disneyland anymore.

    There are no particular "Paris" buys at Les Halles store (aside from the Louvre and Eiffel Tower Architecture sets) but the shop is really nice - there are some great builds inside and some great displays in the windows.  I was there last week and took photos, here are a few! (sorry for the poor quality, it was a fly-by visit):

    It was disappointing to find nothing Paris/France related specifically for the flagship store.

    i wonder if that holds true for the London location that will be opening. I hope not

    that gives me some french vibes. even though that's a bit cliché. especially the bakery. just not sure how often bakers are dressed that way. I don't remember having seen any with the toque.

    It probably became an EU regulation - meaning that they'd deliberately do the opposite, regardless of how they used to dress.

    Unless you count "Spider-Man keyring, because he is in France national colours" (quote by employee).  I was a tad disappointed too but actually the store's builds were great so they were worth a quick visit regardless (if it's not too far out of your way!)

    I agree with the window and in-store displays.

    IF I am not mistaken, there were outstanding Lego models of the Notre Dame, Arc du Triomphe, and the Pantheon.

    Les Halles shopping centre had an animals play area on the lower level and my daughter got to build something that was added to a big group build then given a tiger polybag and a monthly mini build too. There were Lego build throughout the centre. The sets were too expensive for me in the store though.
