Back in August, I was sitting in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport waiting for my very delayed plane when I hopped on a call with a guy named Peter. It was a highlight of my day because I got the inside scoop on what the new Legacy Toys was going to look like in Rochester, Minnesota. If you missed the opening announcement and photos of the new store, you can check it out here.
If you've been anxiously awaiting a chance to see it in person, I've got some good news for you. ;)
