The business began in 2021 after Krystle Zwoll moved to the area and opened the location in Rolling Oaks Mall. Prior to moving, Zwoll worked for Andy’s Brick Shop in Pennsylvania. For three years, she helped expand the business and found a passion for Lego. “I started out as [a coordinator for] birthday parties, and before I knew it, I was running the store,” she said. When Zwoll had to move to Texas, she wanted to open a second Andy’s Brick Shop and found an opportunity to open her shop in Rolling Oaks Mall. “I grew up in Schertz, and I’m from here,” she said. “This is my hometown, and I wanted to open a location in this area.” The store oŽers new and used Lego products, and oŽers trade-in options for people looking to get rid of Lego products. “We are able to carry anything that Lego has made,” Zwoll said. “Any merchandise, sets, anything at all that they have put out, we carry it here.” Zwoll said the goal of trade-ins is to give the sets and products a new life. Apart from the full sets, indi- vidual characters, bricks and other smaller pieces are available to purchase.

Parties include an hour and a half of time and a miniature “gurine. “Each kid gets to go home with a custom build-a-“g, and we entertain them for a full hour,” Zwoll said. “We teach them how to make a race car, and we have a race.” Zwoll said, since opening, the store has received tremendous support from the surrounding community, and she attributes her success to that support. “I really appreciate the com- munity support, and I’m thankful for them coming into my small business,” she said. “I really love the excitement when people come in and see the Legos. I just love that connection.”

Krystle Zwoll opened the Lego shop in Rolling Oaks Mall in 2021 after returning to Texas.
