More UK LEGO Stores set to close on Boxing Day amid tier 4 expansion

More LEGO Stores will close their doors on Boxing Day following the expansion of tier 4 restrictions across the UK.

The highest level of COVID-19 restrictions in the UK requires the closure of all non-essential retail, which includes LEGO Stores. The three London sites, Watford, Bluewater and Milton Keynes are currently closed due to tier 4 restrictions in the south, south-east and east of the country.

From Sunday, December 26, the Brighton and Southampton stores must also close their doors for the foreseeable future. The current restrictions for existing tier 4 areas will be reviewed on December 30, but it’s not clear if that review will also include the new regions.

LEGO Stores throughout the rest of England will remain open, so if you’re in Birmingham, Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool or Leeds, you’ll still be able to check out all the new sets in person on January 1 – provided there are no further developments between now and the new year.

Scotland and Wales’ sole LEGO Stores, in Glasgow and Cardiff respectively, are also both closed. Fortunately, there’s always for your next brick fix – at least when freight routes re-open.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
