Block Friday and Small Business Saturday ALL November long!

Block Friday and Small Business Saturday ALL November long!

Happy November friends! 

We wanted to start this month off by giving you all a COVID-19 update! We know there is a lot happening and a lot of changes still - and we want you to know that your family and health are important to us! With that in mind we are making a few changes to our Holiday Specials this year to promote social distancing. 

This month - instead of one Block Friday and Small Business Saturday at the end we are spreading our deals out! Can you guess what they are?

We think this is even better than just two days at the end of the month! In fact, we love it so much that we are doing something different each week AND it will last the entire weekend, Friday - Sunday! We are so excited to be your One Stop LEGO Shop this holiday season and to help everyone Experience Awesome!

November 6th - 8th features Bulk Your Age! This is our favorite bulk promotion and just in time for the holidays! The details? Ok! We are inviting everyone to come in and fill up a $20 bag of bulk - but it is not $20! The price of the bag is the same as your age!

Pssst... If you are 16+ just say you are 15 and our staff won't ask questions!

From November 13th-15th we are taking you Fishing for Figs! Sounds like fun doesn't it? The details: spend $40 in store and get to go fishing for figs! We will have lots of figs out for fishing! And, since it is Friday the 13th (so spooky and fun!) we will be Experiencing Awesome with some unlucky figs! **While supplies last**

From November 20th to 22nd we will be hosting a Hidden Side Treasure hunt in our stores! So come on in, check out the display, and go ghost hunting! **No purchase necessary** 

And finally - on our true Block Friday November 27th through 29th we will be hosting the tried and true Buy One Get One 50% off for all used LEGO sets! We have so many options available to choose from - we just know you will find the perfect set to treat yourself with or to gift someone else. 

We will continue to promote social distancing, hand sanitizer, and masks in our stores. We are also please to continue to offer LEGO shopping online with options for in-store pick-up, curb-side pick-up and flat rate $10 shipping for Northern California. 

Thank you for allowing us to be your One Stop LEGO Shop!

Wishing you all a spooky Halloween with ghosts!

Welcome to October!

Welcome to October!

Happy October Friends!

How excited are you for the new month?! We are so excited about October and everything it has to offer! I mean, how can you not love a month that marks the coming of fall (and cooler weather), a school break, and Halloween! We here at Bricks and Minifigs are super excited for this month and the new store “theme” of “Get your Spooky On!” We may love Halloween a little too much… nah, there is no such thing!

Get Your Spooky On

Anyways – here is an October Update and some information on what you can expect from us this month! Both the Manteca and Concord stores have seen some re-arranging and re-designing recently to better display our products and to strengthen the partnership with Gamer’s Path – a board game, role playing game, Warhammer, and miniatures store! The store is already up and running in Manteca and will be opening on October 30th in Concord! Check out all the options at their online store!

Gamer's Path

We have also re-designed our displays in both stores! Concord has seen Springfield move and be re-designed and Manteca has said goodbye to the Ninjago scene and hello to a new interactive Hidden Side scene! The Hidden Side scene embraces the “Spooky” theme while showcasing a line that we think is pretty awesome – so come on in, take a look, and do some ghost hunting!

Other exciting news for the stores is the addition of a new paint kit from local artist Lisa Rowe! This paint kit is one that many of you have been asking for recently – Deadpool! Check them out, available for purchase online and in stores! These kits make the perfect at home activity and with easy to follow instructions and all the necessary supplies – just add a cup of water! Deadpool is the latest in a long line of paint kits, so be sure to check them all out!

Some fun things have been happening behind the scenes too! Maybe you noticed on some of our social media post recently – we have a new logo! This logo will slowly take the place of the previous logo on our advertising and in store products!

Another behind the scenes project is the BAM Wagon! We have been working on creating and implementing a new trailer with our products! We are excited about the ability to be mobile soon! Our social media pages will be featuring the progress of this trailer all month long for October! And the trailer will be showcased in both Concord and Manteca  at the end of the month! Keep an eye out for all of the details as well as a facebook page for the BAM Wagon! We will also be participating in Trunk or Treat, hosted by Refuge, in Manteca with the BAM Wagon!

And finally, on to some Halloween fun! This month’s MOC contest is “Get Your Spooky On!” – share with us your spooky creations! More details and last month’s winners in next week’s blog. And, in true Halloween fashion, we will be transforming our spin wheel at the end of the month to a “Trick or Treat” wheel!

That is all for now friends! Stay tuned for our next blog post and enjoy the spookiest time of the year!
