Have you heard the news? San Diego has an American Girl doll store. For a few months at least …
American Girl opened a temporary store in Fashion Valley Mall this weekend to large crowds and a 2-hour wait. This pop up shop barely resembles the “real” store in Los Angeles. It’s simply a retail outlet and does not include a doll hair salon, a restaurant or special events. It’s just a place to buy the beautiful, expensive dolls and their fabulous, expensive accessories.
But for two girls who have yet to make the journey to The Grove, this store was special because the dolls they’ve only admired in catalogs were now at their fingertips.
The Fashion Valley American Girl store will be open through mid-January. It’s located on the lower level right next door to Chico’s.
If you’re considering a holiday purchase, might I suggest that you first make a quick trip to Costco and pick up these gift cards to help ease the pain of purchasing $115 dolls and $125 beds for them to sleep in. 🙂
