Build-A-Bear Black Friday 2022 Sale & Ad – What to Expect

There’s still plenty of time left to go until Build-A-Bear’s Black Friday sale arrives again but you can scroll down the page to view last year’s details to get a general idea of the type of offers that they typically run (it’s likely that we’ll see similar deals return).

As always, we’ll be posting a copy of their ad, sale start/end dates and all the important details for 2022 the moment we know more. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back again soon for the latest updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.


Black Friday 2022 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 two years they’ve been starting their sales a few days before the long weekend, likely as a result of the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We’re still expecting a similar extended sales schedule to return here in 2022, and if it does, these are the Black Friday start and end dates that you will likely see:

  • Expected Black Friday sale start date: Monday November 21, 2022 (that’s 3 days before Thanksgiving).
  • Expected Black Friday sale end date: Saturday November 26, 2022 at 11:59PM ET or when stores close, while in-stock supplies last.

We will be posting Build-A-Bear’s confirmed Black Friday and Thanksgiving weekend sales schedule for 2022 as soon as we have the dates officially verified.
