Eager shoppers have been queuing since 3am to be the first across the threshold of Edinburgh’s new LEGO store
When you find yourself wanting to queue from 3am to be first to go into a new shop to buy some nice little multi coloured plastic bricks, it might be time to ask yourself is everything actually really OK in my world or maybe not entirely? I know Lego is a craze and a passion for some, but this is astonishing!
I've resisted buying anything up to now. People could easily spend a fortune in there. Plenty fresh air as no doors at either end. People seem impressed. I shall be back this afternoon.
What are they thinking, queuing from 3am for a Lego shop? They are either bored, stupid or desperate for a bargain. Get a grip.
Some people just have too much spare time. Madness, you would think the shop was only going to be there for one day.
You get hundreds of people waiting outside shops when a new phone comes out that costs more than a second hand car. No difference really.
Should have set up a Covid vaccination unit to jab those queuing outside if they wanted it.
I suppose I'll get round to having a look at it one day. I expect to discover it's a shopping mall.
Popped in for a look and very impressed.
I really don't get the motivation to go there at 3am to stand in a queue. It's like the Boxing Day sales. I'll wait until I need to go back to the office and pop in for my lunch sometimes.
And in two years we will be discussing what shops have pulled out and why are shopping malls so empty! This is another white elephant.
But is there a Home Bargains and a Poundshop? What lunatic queues from 3am for a shop to open?
I’m not going near any shops while I have to wear a mask and social distancing is in place.
My worst nightmare, I’ll stick to online shopping!
Is there a Jenners?
Do I need 30p for the toilet?
Looks like a lot of shops that people wont spend money in ...
I wonder how long till turns out like Glasgow malls.
This centre is massive! Looking forward to having it at top of road. Tons of amazing shops and places for eating. Looks amazing.
Shop local, Toys Galore, Morningside.
It’s all nice and well to build a fancy shopping centre but all that’s happened is shops have relocated from Princes Street. If you include Debenhams being closed, that section of Princes Street between Castle and Frederick has at least four shops now closed, three of which have relocated. Not sure what’s to become of Princes Street, there’s only so many hotels you can build.
Looks great apart from the bridge type gangways……. I have a phobia and can feel the sweat starting!
I’m actually so excited to go here, it looks amazing and is a great addition to the city. Funnily enough, however, I am not born and raised in Edinburgh and I’m not generally miserable, so that’s probably why I can’t wait to go!
Junk food adverts to be banned on TV before 9pm in landmark decision
Young folk don't watch much TV, they prefer Netflix etc,but anything is better than nothing.
Maybe it’s the parents’ job to regulate their child’s food intake. Obesity starts with bad diet at home. Stop taking parental responsibility away from parents and make them accountable. What next?
And you seriously think this will stop kids wanting a McDonald's or granny buying the kids a bar of chocolate? Dream on.
Won't make the slightest bit of difference. They gonna ban Spongebob? He works in a junk food joint...
How about teaching the parents to say no instead?
