My daughter and I have been long-time fans of Build-A-Bear Workshop. Over the years, we have had some memorable experiences at their New York City store location in the Staten Island Mall.
When I received an invitation to attend the new Build-A-Bear Workshop store opening in New York City, I was delighted! Last Friday was the official ribbon cutting ceremony of the newest store location right in the heart of Manhattan – and this was a BIG moment to help celebrate the brand’s 20th Birthday.
It was exciting to be present when the store opened to the public. The 36-inch Champ Bear was given away to the first 20 guests in line! I spoke to one guest who lined up at 7 a.m. so she could be one of the first inside to receive the Champ Bear. Now that’s what I call a super fan!
So what sets the Manhattan store apart from the other build-a-Bear locations?
The new store features custom New York City signage and wall graphics, an updated look that’s part of Build-A-Bear Workshop’s brand refresh and a seven-foot-tall stuffer located toward the front of the store – welcoming guests as they enter. All of these designs help to make Build-A-Bear Workshop’s iconic experience even more memorable for guests. I loved all the changes, and you will too!
After walking around the store, I was taken back by how many different furry friend options there are to choose from. Guests can literally find something for everyone – and trust me on that one! With the holidays right around the corner, I know you will find the perfect furry friend for your child, family or friend’s child!
If you are like me (a BIG Star Wars fan) you can pick up a fun holiday treat for yourself at the Manhattan location.
Now that Halloween has passed and the holiday season is upon us, Build-A-Bear Workshop’s reindeer selection (now available online and in stores) could make a perfect gift. I’m really excited about all the holiday furry friends – I know it will be difficult for me to choose just one reindeer to make this year!
