Remember last week when Build-A-Bear thought it would be a good idea to do a "Pay Your Age" event all across America? Clearly they didn't think that one through cause the lines were INSANELY long and several locations ended up shutting down for security reasons.
The Opry Mills location only survived a few hours before getting shut down.
HAPPENING NOW: Long lines at Build-A-Bear inside Cool Springs Galleria Mall for its "Pay Your Age Day" event. Company recently posted on its website they cannot accept additional guests due to crowd and safety concerns. https://t.co/e0CwzGi2A0 pic.twitter.com/BUMhDCtS5l— NewsChannel 5 (@NC5) July 12, 2018
The company has since learned its lesson, but their not giving up on "pay your age"! But luckily they aren't making it a one-day event. This time, they're making it year round! There's two "catches" though - you have to sign up for a free Build-A-Bear Bonus Club account and you must be under 14.
As long as you follow those rules, you can visit any location on ANY day during your birthday month to build yourself a Birthday Treat Bear and you'll only have to pay your age! The bear regularly costs $14.
