Build-A-Bear Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Tuesday November 24, 2020: Build-A-Bear is kicking off their Black Friday deals early this year!

Starting today, visit shop to pick up select Furry Friends for just $8/each. You can also visit any Build-A-Bear Workshop store for buy-one get-one for $10 on Make-Your-Own furry friends. Offer excludes Disney Frozen, and all outfits and accessories are sold separately.

Everything is while supplies last and keep in mind that there are usually limits in place on how many bears you can buy at the doorbuster price. See their site or store for full offer details. Terms, conditions and exclusions may apply. Happy bargain hunting!

Black Friday 2020 Start & End Dates

Build-A-Bear Workshop has historically run their Black Friday sale on Thanksgiving day online and on Black Friday itself in-stores. However last year they started part of their sale a week before the long weekend, reserving only a few doorbuster offers on Black Friday itself. It looks like they did the same again this year.

  • Confirmed start date: Tuesday November 24, 2020.
  • Expected end date: Friday November 27, 2020 at 11:59PM ET or when stores close, while supplies last.

  1. That seems a little hypocritical that a company so family-centered makes their employees work on actual Thanksgiving night while they should be home with their own families. Instead they’ll be making screaming children stuffed bears and having to listen to middle aged mothers gripe about the deals not being good enough. I feel sorry

    1. Hi Ginny — I agree with you 100%. Thanksgiving is the one holiday that regardless of religion or personal beliefs, is celebrated by all Americans. Everyone should have the day off from work.

  2. I bought my first born son a teddy bear right before he was born. He still loves it even though he’s now 7. Now when my second son is on his way, we will build a bear for him too! We still have two months to do it so I’m hoping for a good deal on the customized bear.
