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.

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