Do you buy lego at Borders?

I don't know if every borders store does this but do you buy lego at borders bookstores?

Mine doesn't carry them, though I believe they carried the Advent calendars a few years ago. If they did still carry them, I'd certainly buy there; I get coupons all the time, and spend enough money on other merchandise to earn Borders Bucks every few months. :)

If you are looking for LEGO sets at Borders you usually have to go into the kid's book section. This will be where they have them, and I am only saying this because of the 20% sale on them that was posted on the Finds/Deals section.

I've never noticed Lego sets in my local Borders store but I have seen the DK books. I get coupons all the time as well since I'm in their rewards program. Now I know what to do during my lunch hour tomorrow...

Yeah, years ago when I was into Bionicle (the reeeeally old ones), I used to pick up the occasional set at Borders. I didn't know they stocked sets anymore--I'll have to check it out. I'm a Border's rewards member, so I'm always getting major discounts on any item in the store.

On a related note, I discovered over Spring Break that Barnes and Noble has quite an extensive online selection of sets--for decent prices. I've yet to see them in my local B&N store, though.

I usually don't see LEGO at Borders (I've seen them twice there), but I have seen a Hogwart's Castle there when they released the Order of the Phoenix movie, and last time I went I saw an R2-D2 pen.

EDIT: I saw a Police Officer and City Minifigure Collection sets last time I went. :)

Correction! My local Borders DOES carry Lego now. In fact, they've got quite a few Star Wars, Town, Bionicle, and Pirates items there. I used a 40% off coupon today, and nabbed the Separatist Shuttle for $18. :D
