"Per local authorities, we can not accept additional Guests at our locations due to crowds and safety concerns", Build-A-Bear said in a statement. Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members in the USA and Canada can also obtain a voucher by logging into their account by midnight on July 15, 2018.

Toy company Build-A-Bear issued a warning to customers against visiting its stores today after a "pay your age" promotion backfired spectacularly.

According to a press release earlier this week, Build-A-Bear created the one-day promotion "to kick off its new, everyday celebration of birthdays".

On Thursday, Build-A-Bear Workshop offered a big deal to its customers.

THE Build-A-Bear toy shop in Belfast's Victoria Square has been forced to close its doors after "extreme" crowds turned up at the store to take advantage of a promotion.

Serena Williams vs Angelique Kerber, Wimbledon 2018 final
Angelique Kerber ripped up the script when she stunned Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday. On Sunday, Djokovic will play Kevin Anderson , who won his semifinal against John Isner 26-24 in the fifth set Friday night.

Columbia Center mall's Build-A-Bear joined the hysteria with hundreds of people lined up from the mall entrance to Macy's, down to the mall's movie theater.

Others defended Build-A-Bear Workshop saying customers should have expected this. Kids were able to pay just a few dollars for stuffed bears, while adults' fees were capped at $29. That means a one-year-old can get what typically retails for around $25, for a single buck.

Customers went to the malls to get a bear for a bargain, but a lot of them left angry and disappointed.

Build-A-Bear announced on their website that they distributed vouchers to people present in lines to be redeemed for a future purchase. "Unfortunately, given these circumstances, we were unable to serve all of our Guests for the Pay Your Age Day event".
