Build-A-Bear at Broadway at the Beach remains open despite crowds

Locals flood Build-A-Bear for "Pay Your Age" promotion

MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- While Build-A-Bear stores around the country and shutting down because of crowds, the store at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach remains open.

The chain is having a "Pay Your Age" promotion, where bears can be bought for the child's age, meaning a 4-year-old child would get a bear for $4.

While Build-a-Bear posted to their website and social media that they were not accepting additional guests "due to crowds and safety concerns," the Myrtle Beach location remains open.

WMBF News staffers spoke with one woman who had been waiting in line since 8:30 a.m. to get the deal.
