We’re already looking forward to Build-A-Bear’s Black Friday 2023 sale. Although we still have a long ways to go, you can already slowly start planning for the event. Check out last year’s ad and offer details posted below to get a general idea of the type of deals that they like to run. And if you join our newsletter, you’ll be the first to know once their Black Friday 2023 ad is posted.
Black Friday 2023 Start & End Dates
Historically, Build-A-Bear Workshop begins their Black Friday sale online on Thanksgiving day and in-stores on Black Friday. However during these last 3 years they’ve been starting their sales a few days before the long weekend. So if a similar extended sales schedule returns again returning here in 2023 then these are the start and end dates that you can expect to see:
- Expected BF sale start date: Sunday November 19, 2023 (that’s 4 days before Thanksgiving).
- Expected BF sale end date: Saturday November 25, 2023 at 11:59PM ET or when stores close, while in-stock supplies last.
Just remember that these dates are still just our predictions and, at the moment, unconfirmed. We’ll post the official sale dates for 2023 as soon as we are able to independently verify them.

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
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.
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.
