Black Friday 2021 Start & End Dates

Historically, Build-A-Bear Workshop usually begins their Black Friday sale online on Thanksgiving day and in-stores on Black Friday. However last year they started their sale a few days before the long weekend, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And it looks like they are doing the same again this year!

  • Confirmed BF sale, start date: Monday November 22, 2021 (that’s 3 days before Thanksgiving).
  • Confirmed BF sale, end date: Saturday November 27, 2021 at 11:59PM ET or when stores close, while in-stock supplies last.

If you’ll be shopping in-stores over the 4-day weekend day then be sure to call ahead for opening times in your neighborhood (last year most Build-A-Bear Workshop stores were closed on Thanksgiving day itself).

  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.
