Mall At Wellington Green Welcomes Build-A-Bear Workshop

The Mall at Wellington Green recently welcomed Build-A-Bear Workshop to its more than 160 stores and restaurants. The popular toy shop and party destination is known for delighting people of all ages, who design their own custom teddy bear — or one of more than 30 other stuffed animal friends — and have it assembled on the spot.

The 1,750-foot store opened on Tuesday, Oct. 4, on the lower level near JCPenney.

“We are so excited that Build-A-Bear Workshop has opened at the Mall at Wellington Green. Our young guests will love the experience of making a teddy bear that they design themselves. It’s also a great destination for people looking for holiday gifts this year,” General Manager Marc Strich said.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is a popular children’s birthday party destination and offers a range of special birthday party workshop packages. Parties are also memorable and easy for the parents. The shop provides a cupcake ceremony and party games, and the guest of honor and friends can make their own bears to take home.

This fall, the Mall at Wellington Green is also the seasonal home of Halloween Express, a holiday-themed pop-up shop specializing in Halloween costumes, wigs, makeup and spooky decor. The 2,800-square-foot shop will be open on the lower level across from the Food Court through Sunday, Nov. 6.

A number of shops and restaurants joined the mall in recent months, including two new fashion retailers, Torrid and Kreation. Torrid sells clothing for women sizes 10 to 30 and is offering a special Halloween section this fall, as well as Dr. Who-themed fashions. Kreation sells a unique collection of fashion jewelry.

The Mall at Wellington Green is thrilled to welcome America’s first the Beauty and the Beeeef Burger Bar soon. The Beauty and the Beeeef is a Canadian-based restaurant that features Angus beef burgers topped with nouveau French flavors, including sautéed shallots, brie, Parisian mushrooms, wine-based sauces and fig jelly. The Mall at Wellington Green is the first U.S. location for the chain.

The mall’s two levels feature more than 160 stores and restaurants. Stores include Macy’s, Nordstrom, Brighton Collectibles, Chico’s, Express, Forever 21, H&M, Pandora and Helzberg Diamonds. Dining options range from Red Robin and California Pizza Kitchen to Subway and Chick-fil-A.
