Spokane Valley Mall Build-A-Bear location closes line, gives customers vouchers

"The crowds have greatly exceeded our expectations and, per local authorities, queues are at capacity and we can not accept additional guests due to extreme crowds and safety concerns".

Already, the company offering $15 vouchers to all its Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members in the US and Canada.

"We understand this is disappointing, we are working to address the situation, and we will be reaching out to our valued Guests soon".

Now the Build-A-Bear store in Parkdale Mall is still open but the lines snake through the mall.

The company had previously said that if there was a line on Thursday, stores will let customers buy a stuffed animal and come back another time to "build" it when the workshop is less hectic.

The company offered a "pay your age promotion" Thursday prompting hour long waits and lengthy lines that wrapped around the mall in some cities.

- If you're not already in line for today's special Build-A-Bear store sale, it's probably too late.

"Brought my lil one to the @buildabear pay your age event". Numerous chain's stores called off the event entirely once lines were reportedly becoming a safety concern. So if your child is seven years old, you pay $7; two, $2, and so forth.

Photos from Build-A-Bears show chaotic scenes and long lines.

Build-A-Bear said that children would be able to pay their age for a bear.

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.
