For the longest time there has been an undeveloped lot behind the Grand Emporium. For a while it looked like an apartment building was going in there but unfortunately the developer's financing never materialized so the GE decided to grab the lot and expand. The ground floor now holds apparel as well as a new boutique grocery store. The second floor is now home to home furnishings, electronics, and computers. The top floor is now dedicated to toys, a new arcade, and candy shop. Feel free to drop by any time - the friendly staff will be happy to help.
About this creation
The Emporium now stretches all the way back to the Outbrick Steak House.
The classic front end of the shop has remained unchanged. It has simply been extended to the end of the block.
Here we can see the new back entrance to the store. From this side you can enter directly into the new boutique grocery store. Good thing the property backs up to Lockridge Plantation. Their new new organic products are sure to be a big hit.
Here we can take in the whole ground floor.
Starting at the back you can see the new butcher shop and bakery. Finest meats and breads in town!
Cafe Corner Coffee and Pixel Cola - fast movers in any store.
Breakfast cereal and even some grub for the family pet.
Mmmmmmm... waffles and maple syrup - breakfast of champion minifigs everywhere.
It is a true pleasure to discover Godwin's Hollow. I really like the architecture of all the buildings and the interiors are exceptional! Thank you for mentioning BrickBuildersPro. What they do is amazing - I placed an order yesterday.
Excellent/incredible! Very well done Stewart, the level of detail is amazing. The butcher shop/bakery is especially wonderful. The use of container/cupboard element 4532a in the wall is great: I will definitely 'borrow' this idea for my own projects! I went to brickbuilderspro to look for stickers but they don't have any, did you buy all of them? ;-)

Magic !! A Great Emporium, and all that stuff all nicely labelled up, most Fun !>.....well done
Again, thank you everyone for the very kind comments. To answer a common question all of the custom artwork and stickers came from BrickBuildersPro. They have some great art that can really add a lot to your interior details.
Superb! Everything about this is so well thought out and executed. Love the mannequins and the clothing on hangers. The butcher shop looks great. I also like all of the decals for the different products in the emporium. Are those custom decals or LEGO produced?
Wow, never thought that Grand emporium cuold be so 'Grand'! I really like the products they sell there! Where did you get all the stickers from? Anyways, it's really great! Check out my buildings as well, you will like them. Good job!
I absolutely love this building even better than tool shop and bike shop... Still love the fire house (as I'm a huge Lego fire fan).
Always makes my day to see and read about your city.
Keep up the great work stewart.
Thank you all for the great comments. To answer a few questions there are only 2 GE's in this MOC. The custom artwork, arcade games, and candy shop all came from BrickBuildersPro - they've got some really great things that, like many of you have said, really help add some kick to interior details. We're almost done with out City Hall so check back in a few days and we should have some pics of it up as well. Thanks again for checking out our little city and for all of the very generous comments.
