The Build-A-Bear Workshop was supposed to open Friday, March 28. I don’t know if it did or not, but it was definitely open on Saturday, March 29. I was by there when we were visiting the area for Earth Hour, and I guess it fit right in. There was no sign on the outside at all that would light up. There were still exposed wires where the sign would be. You could see insulation in areas, and wood in other areas. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done on the outside.
The inside however looked totally complete and was very nice. For some reason I thought it was going to have two separate floors, but it is just a single floor with ceilings that are two-storeys tall. As I walked in, there was the typical cheerful host welcoming me and asking if I had any questions. She said they had a special Niagara Falls t-shirt for only $2 (I don’t know if that was a special grand opening price or a regular price). The t-shirt decal had a bear in a barrel going over Niagara Falls. It was cute.
