America’s most loved bear is in discussion currently with the Miller Hill Mall about opening a location within the mall in 2013. Build A Bear Workshop, who is famous for their beloved bears that are not only customizable, but also built by the customer on site, has been working with the mall for the past few years on trying to open a location. The store has recently thrived with in the U.S. for not only it’s unique style of bears, but also it’s unique process in building the bears . Customers start by filling the bear of their choice (or dinosaur at participating Rainforest Cafes) with stuffing. Inside the bear they place a heart in which they make a wish for the bear, customers also have the ability to record something and put it inside the bear so that when the bear is squeezed it will “talk.” After that they go on to bathe the bear, dress the bear, and ultimately are given a “birth certificate” for the bear when the process is finished. It’s a process that Americans, and now international people also, have seem to adore. Originally a store was suppose to open at the Miller Hill Mall in 2010/2011, but when the economy went down hill those plans were put on hold. Now discussions have been put back on the table with a hopeful opening in 2013. More news will be posted here as it becomes available!
