The company issued a statement that safety concerns prompted the store to attempt to limit the crowd size. However the company didn't realize how popular the event would be.

There are several locations in the area including Woodfield Mall, Northbrook Court, Gurnee Mills, Oakbrook Center, Fox Valley Mall and Fashion Outlets in Rosemont.

In Strongsville, Build-A-Bear opened at 10 a.m. The vouchers are good until August 31, 2018.
