It sounded too good to be true.

We are getting word that the Build-A-Bear Workshop has announced that they are ending their promotion today on July 12, 2018 due to an overwhelming turnout at their stores.

The promotion "Pay Your Age" brought thousands out to malls across the country and now due to a safety concern, the promotion has been called off.

As you may imagine, some parents are outraged.

This promotion would allow you to build a bear and the cost of it is your age. Yeah, big savings.

We saw the line in the Acadiana Mall and many were hoping to take advantage of the promotion, but it has since been cancelled.

Here's what it looked like in the Lafayette, LA mall

 

UPDATE: The location in the Acadiana Mall will remain open today, but the line extending out of the mall has been "cut off." However, the store will honor orders while supplies last.
