Interactive make-your-own stuffed toy store Build-A-Bear Workshop has opened its newest location in the GCC at the Arabian Centre, a Mirdif-based mall managed by the Lals Group. This opening marks the seventh store for Build-A-Bear Workshop, with outlets already in The Dubai Mall, Dubai Festival City, Yas Mall and Al Wahda Mall in Abu Dhabi, City Centre Bahrain and The Avenues Kuwait.
“We have chosen our first location for 2015 very carefully because we want to broaden our store base beyond the usual mega-malls, reaching out to community and Arabian Centre fits that category perfectly and will be our first such venture,” shares Build-A-Bear Workshop GM Paul Marks.
“Our success in Kuwait shows that local families love our brand. This will be an exciting year for the Build-A-Bear family with this new addition and the two upcoming new store openings in Qatar and Kuwait,” he reveals.
