Build-A-Bear had a very sucessful event today. Pay Your Age for a bear..essentially, your 2 year old could get a bear for only $2... the problem, they didn't consider how crazy the demand would be! They had to cut off the lines nationwide just after an hour of stores opening!
Witnesses say there was a 2 hour wait at the Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg store. Photos below...
No thanks! I'll go on a normal day and pay the normal price. Time is money!
“PAY YOUR AGE” DAY: This is the line for @buildabear at the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. Witness says there’s a 2 hour wait once inside the store just to stuff bears. Build-A-Bear had to cut lines off nationwide less than an hour after they opened. #buildabear #allthebears pic.twitter.com/UMWrIH6jEb— Marissa Bailey (@MarissaBaileyTV) July 12, 2018
STORE MAYHEM: Kids retailer Build-A-Bear Workshop was forced to close stores lines for their "Pay Your Age" day due to massive crowds of customers taking advantage of the promotion, which allows people of all ages to purchase a "Make-Your-Own" stuffed animal for the same cost as that person's age. #shutdown #promotion #buildabear #dallas #arizona #kansascity #chicago #aerial #children #sale #abc #worldnewstonight
