It is my daughter’s firm belief that one can never have enough Build-A-Bear stuffed animals; and, as you can tell from the picture, our family and friends are a little too happy to oblige! But, even more than snuggling with her newest rabbit or bear, she loves creating her own special friend. Build-A-Bear is high on her list of favorite stores, for that very reason. The sales associates are always so friendly, and she loves going through the ritual of filling her newest animal with stuffing, selecting the perfect “heart,” and naming her friend.
And, next month, there will be a Build-A-Bear close to our house! We were so excited to hear that Build-A-Bear is opening a new location in Fair Oaks Mall (on Level 2 near Cheesecake Factory). The official ribbon cutting ceremony will be at 10:00 AM on Friday, November 9th, but the festivities will last all weekend through Sunday, November 11th. Here are some of the promotions planned for the Grand Opening CeleBEARation:
- FREE Memory Book* with any purchase
- FREE limited edition Birth Certificate*
- FREE bear head paper ears with virtual gift on Bearville.com™*
- Special appearances by Bearemy®, our Huggable Mascot, and other family entertainment
- First 100 Guests, Friday and Saturday, will have a chance to make a bear for free to be donated to charity.
