Ooh, that would be a fun project! Let's get some AFOLs out to Memphis with their LEGO! Let's build a LEGO store!
Sadly, Memphis isn't exactly close to where I'm at either, tucked in Northwest Arkansas, but I just want an option more than driving to Oklahoma City. That way, I can come up with more excuses for "trips" that happen to coincide with a store location. It gets hard to keep going to the same city over and over...
You know, if I see links to Brickshelf, more often than not, the first thing I click is the "Back" button.
