Q&A with Bricks & Minifigs Huntsville owner Carl Powell
Q: What is Bricks & Minifigs Huntsville?
A: Bricks & Minifigs Huntsville is your one-stop shop for LEGO® toys. We buy, sell, and trade LEGO® sets and minifigs, and we offer a variety of LEGO® merchandise for you to take home. Our knowledgeable staff is passionate about all things in the LEGO® system, and we are dedicated to providing the best customer service possible.
Q: Are you the only Lego store in Alabama? Why Huntsville?
A: Yes, we are! There was formerly a LEGO Brand store in Birmingham, but it closed a couple of years ago. We are now the only LEGO-focused store in the state. Huntsville was the obvious choice because a) We live here and b) the engineering focus of this town is really a great boon to LEGO builders.
Q: How do you give back to the community?
A: We support schools, non-profits, fundraisers and other groups by providing prizes, donations, and coupons. We have a page on our website dedicated to how we give back:
Q: Is the store for all Lego enthusiasts — young and old?
A: Absolutely! We have customers ages 1 to over 70 and LEGO® appears to be popular for life.
Q: What are some of the most unique Lego sets you have or have had?
A: We have seen LEGO sets from as far back as the 1960’s, tons of retired sets that come in, and many people come in just to see sets they had when they were children. We currently have old Knights sets, the Upside Down from Stranger Things, many of the Modular buildings, and of course several of the Ultimate Collector Series Star Wars sets! We never know from one day to the next what interesting set will come in!
