Build-A-Bear shuts down lines amid ‘Pay Your Age’ day chaos

INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV)

Build-A-Bear Workshop said they are turning down additional customers in their United States and Canada stores as crowds swarmed their stores for ‘Pay Your Age’ day.

The company said via a Facebook post that “due to crowds and safety concerns…we have closed lines in our U.S. and Canada stores. We understand some Guests are disappointed and we will reach out directly as soon as possible.”

Large crowds formed Thursday at both the Independence Center and Zona Rosa locations. One guest was told it would be a 10-hour wait.

The company said earlier this week that for one-day only the age of a guest will determine how much their furry friend will cost.

If you’re older than the cost of the furry friend you want to purchase, don’t worry, no one will be a “day over 29 years old–meaning no matter their age, guests will pay no more than $29,” according to the company’s website.

The offer is valid to Bonus Club members, which is free for all to enroll in.
