Build-A-Bear closes lines nationwide for Pay Your Age Day due to 'unprecedented response'

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) - Build-A-Bear announced it is closing lines for its Pay Your Age Day event due to crowd and safety concerns.

The Pay Your Age Day allowed children to pay their age for any furry friend at the Build-A-Bear Workshop when accompanied by an adult or guardian.

The only requirement was for the adult to be a Club Member or they would have to register to become one. 

"We understand some of our guests are disappointed," the company said in a statement on its website. 

At one point, wait was nearly four hours at its Crossgates Mall location.
