|LEGO Store in Mayfair Mall|
I will likely be heading over for the grand opening (possibly volunteering for the building event), but I could not wait until then. We drove over on Sunday and got to the mall about a half hour after it opened. The drive is just over an hour from our home and was fine until we got closer to Milwaukee. An accident and Brewers traffic slowed down the approach a little, but we still made decent time from Madison. Do note that there is ongoing construction along Mayfair Road. It's not too bad, but does mess up the traffic patterns a little.

The store is a bit on the smaller side. It does not run back very far, although it actually has a pretty wide storefront. Pick-A-Brick is located behind the registers and was full of mostly 2x4 bricks in a variety of colors. I did see some green plates and red 2x2 tiles, along with some plant parts. I did not fill a cup, but that was largely because I had other purchases on my agenda.
Like many other stores I've heard about, it sounds like their excess inventory is stored in another location. So if you don't see something on the shelf, be sure to ask an employee. The do have a lot of inventory in store though. Boxes were stacked from floor to ceiling in most sections.
As for my haul, I went a little crazy. I picked up a Town Hall, Pet Shop, and some Star Wars/Super Heroes sets I had my eye on. It could have been much worse, trust me.
