Gurnee Mills has a new store that will work wee shoppers into a tizzy. Now open in the new wing anchored by Macy's, the LEGO Brand Retail Store offers a full selection of goods for kids aged two and up. There's also a "Pick-a-Brick" wall, which lets shoppers handpick and buy LEGO bricks in specific shapes and colors. And in the center of the space, a "Living Room" offers a comfy space to play with the products. [Racked Inbox]
