John’s Box of Bricks (Prescott, Ariz.), a store specializing in unique Lego products, will open Nov. 1 in its home city’s historic and holiday-themed downtown. Its owner says the new store say will provide a family-oriented shopping experience in a downtown dominated by bars, taverns, souvenir shops, women’s clothing stores and art galleries.

In line with the downtown’s longtime “Christmas City” identity, during the holidays, the store will showcase two winter villages built entirely from Lego bricks. The outlet will also offer new and used Lego sets and minifigures for sale, most of which are unavailable in typical retail outlets. Building sets will span a variety of interests, including Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, Harry Potter, music, art, dinosaurs, sports cars, aviation, space, architecture, botanicals, and Christmas/seasonal sets, as well as classical Lego themes such as City, Ninjago, Friends and Duplo, among others.

John’s Box of Bricks is a family business owned and operated by CPA/business executive John Donovan. (His wife, Heather, and their 13-year-old son, Tyler, also work for the firm.) The elder Donavan decided to open a brick-and-mortar store specializing in Lego products after realizing the significant demand for such products but discovering the limitations of selling them online.

“Lego products are uniquely suited to be purchased in person at a brick-and-mortar store where they can be viewed, demonstrated, compared, and handled by the customer,” he said.
