Childhood favourite store Build-A-Bear is shutting its doors after 14 years.
Ten of the company's stores will be closing over the next few weeks including Logan Hyperdome, Kawana, Mt Ommaney, Werribee, Eastland, Garden City, Carousel, Marion, Green Hills and Miranda.
‘We are all pretty gutted,’ Paige Fleming, who works at the Logan store, told the Courier Mail.
‘We weren’t told why we were closing but any excess stock will go to the other outlets at Carindale and the Gold Coast.’
‘We have an incredibly dedicated team, and have an established brand that resonates with consumers of all ages. We want to thank our entire team and our valued customers and suppliers who have been great supporters of the brand over the last 14 years,’ Chief executive Gavin Port said.
‘The company will continue to focus on bringing smiles and a unique experience to our guests.
