At the LEGO Store, you’ll find sets built around the worlds of Star Wars, Harry Potter, Nintendo, Marvel, Disney, and many more. One of the best things about LEGO is that many adults in your life love them too, both as something they can do with their kids or by themselves. It’s almost impossible to go wrong when shopping at the LEGO Store.


One of the things that makes Nordstrom such a special place to shop is its dedication to customer service and exceptional merchandise.

If you have young women in your life, you’ve probably discovered that keeping up with young women’s fashion is a challenging prospect in our busy world. Fortunately, the Windsor store is all about knowing the styles that the young women of today want and need.

From formal events to casual wear, you’ll be able to count on the knowledgeable and friendly staff at Windsor.

Swiss Watch Gallery

Sometimes, nothing is more appreciated than going the extra mile with a gift. Very fine jewelry and watches are more than special gifts for your loved ones. They can mark the most special occasions and significant accomplishments in life and are often solid investments that will grow in value over time. If someone in your life deserves such recognition, the Swiss Watch Gallery features a variety of the most respected names in watches, including Rolex, Omega, Breitling, and Tag Heuer. It also carries a great selection of fine jewelry, featuring engagement rings and wedding bands from Tacori.

The Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory is so much more than a place to get incredible desserts. You’ll be able to satisfy the hungriest of shoppers from their extensive menu that includes generous portions of steak and seafood entrees, gourmet hamburgers, salads, and pasta dishes.
