Build-A-Bear announces "Pay Your Age" day lines are closed

Posted: Updated:

 Build-A-Bear has closed the lines at stores across the United States and Canada after an overwhelming response to the company's "Pay Your Age" Day held on Thursday, July 12.

The company says the nationwide line closures come after large crowds created safety concerns at several locations. The company shared in a Facebook post that local authorities have asked them to close the lines to ensure that other guests are safe.

In Lafayette, the line for the Build-A-Bear event snaked its way through the Acadiana Mall and was steadily growing. Lines there have been closed in response to the company's call for safety.

Build-A-Bear says that it was not able to serve all those guests who showed up Thursday to stand in line and wait. As a result, the company distributed vouchers to those waiting in line. 

Now those vouchers have been made available to call Bonus Club members with Build-A-Bear. 

"Bonus Club members which must be screenshot or printed by logging into your account before midnight on 15 July. We encourage all of our valued Guests to visit our full statement at the following link and we’d like to reiterate our sincerest thanks for your passion and continued support," a post on Facebook Thursday said.
