Taking a trip? Need a new backpack? The Highlander has you covered.

With everything from briefcases to umbrellas, the new shop meets a critical need for local residents.

"I haven't been able to travel in years," said Nita Journey. "I came here without any luggage and haven't been able to find a bag anywhere! There's plenty of coffee and scads of books, but until today there was not a suitcase to be found!"

Mayor Builder was quick to point out that the upper floors of the industrial style building are vacant and available for rent as apartment space or a loft-style office. "It's a great space," said the Mayor. "Absolutely perfect for an artist's loft or something along those lines."

Unconfirmed reports claim that Bob Ross the minifigure is looking to rent the space as soon as his hair arrives in MoreCityBricks.

MoreCityBricks residents are dusting off their bowling balls and digging out their bowling shoes to celebrate the grand opening of Strike bowling alley.

After months of speculation that the Brick Bank franchise was coming to town, MoreCityBricks residents were stunned to find that a home-grown bank opened its doors first.

"I thought Mayor Builder had received the necessary approval for a Brick Bank franchise on Official Avenue," said Alma Cash. "I was ready to put all my cash in that type of bank. I'm not too sure about this historic bank."

Mayor Builder urged residents to use the bank regardless of whether it is an original or official building. "It's a bank, people. It has a vault, tellers, and money. That's what banks are."

The historic bank is rumored to be among the first MoreCityBricks' buildings nominated for the National Register of Historic Places. There is no word yet on whether simply naming a building "historic" makes it eligible for placement on the list.

With even more townhouses going up in MoreCityBricks, community activists are urging Mayor Builder to consider adding a school.

"It doesn't matter if it's an elementary school or a high school or even a dog school," said Ima Taxpayer. "We just need to have a school building so we can turn out smart children."

Mayor Builder declined to comment on the prospect of a new school building, but sources close to the mayor say they wouldn't rule out a bowling alley instead.

The MoreCityBricks Courthouse is Now Open

posted Feb 27, 2017, 12:56 PM by MoreCity Bricks

Residents of MoreCityBricks can now take their complaints to the top. The Courthouse opened for business recently after outraged residents voiced their concerns that it was too difficult to pay their taxes and sue their neighbors without a local courthouse.

"We're glad to finally have a place to take our litigation," said local attorney Hal Cheetum. "I wouldn't be surprised if this move doesn't bring a huge influx of law offices and bail bondsmen around the square."

Mayor Builder was quick to point out that MoreCityBricks is a peaceful place. With no police department in town and no jail cells in the new courthouse, the mayor expects that only civil cases will be heard in the courthouse. "Simple matters like property lines and building code violations are the chief complaints found here in town," the mayor said.

On a side note, the mayor pointed out that no one in town should ever be late for anything again as the new courthouse has a huge clock tower with four gigantic clock faces presenting the current time to virtually everyone.

"With the ever rising cost of Café Corner, it just did not make sense for MoreCityBricks to move in that direction," said Mayor Builder. "Now with the Deli Café, we have the essence of that historic business with a style and flair that is distinctly MoreCityBricks."
