Pay Your Age Promo Causes Chaos At NYC Build-A-Bear Store

A "Pay Your Age" promotion at Build-A-Bear Workshop Stores caused chaos from coast to coast yesterday.   Long lines and frayed tempers were reported in New York City, Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and suburban Detroit.  At a Midtown Manhattan location, a woman said she and her eight-year-old boy waited five hours to get in and pay eight-bucks to build a bear.  The company was so overwhelmed it was forced to shut down its all-day promo by early afternoon.  Build-A-Bear has apologized and is offering 15-dollar vouchers for kids to get stuffed animals another day.
