The Build-A-Bear Workshop's "pay your age" promotion overwhelmed local stores throughout the US with long lines Thursday morning.

The large amount of people caused safety concerns with local authorities, which caused numerous stores to cut off the lines.

Some arrived hours before stores opened to take advantage of the deal that allowed them to purchase a character and pay their current age.

Before the stores opened in the US, the long lines caused the company to publish a notice on social media that it would limit the number of people who could take advantage of the deal due to safety concerns. They also said they are making vouchers available online for US and Canada Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members who log into their account by July 15 at midnight.

Build-A-Bear has more than 400 stores worldwide, including seven in the Los Angeles metro area.
