The LEGO store opened at Crabtree Valley Mall an hour early for 9 year-old Gavin to have his own personal shopping experience, courtesy of Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina.
Gavin is a big fan of Star Wars and Batman and already had several items in mind before the shopping began. Picked up by limo, Gavin and his family were given the royal treatment at the LEGO store and then continued to shop at various stores at the mall. After the purchases were made the rest of Gavin’s wish to have a private lunch at Kanki Japanese House of Steak and Sushi was fulfilled.
With a long day of shopping and dining behind him, Gavin was able to take his toys home where he was greeted with a big surprise--the Star Wars Multi Troop Transport LEGO set he had always wanted.
"The experience gave us a special day to focus on Gavin's happiness," said his mom.
