A newly renovated and updated Build-A-Bear Workshop is opening in Westfield Annapolis Friday, Oct. 19. The new store is one of six opening across the country in 2012 with a new store concept, which has been more than two years in the making, according to a press release. The new design merges Build-A-Bear’s hands-on bear-making process with the power of technology.
“The new store at Westfield Annapolis will provide fun, memorable, and innovative experiences for families for years to come,” said Maxine Clark, founder and chief executive bear of Build-A-Bear Workshop. “When Build-A-Bear Workshop opened its first store, our concept redefined retail and this new design will once again change the industry. I am very excited about the enhanced features that will allow us to continue to lead in the interactive retail space.”
