So a four year old could get a $60 bear for just $4.

Several stores across the country have had to shutdown because of the long lines.

And the company suspended the sale at some locations, just hours after it began.

“Please be aware: Based on the unprecedented response to our Pay Your Age Day event in our early opening stores, we are experiencing significantly longer than expected lines and large crowds. Local authorities are requiring us to limit the lines and crowds due to safety concerns. We understand this is disappointing, we are working to address the situation, and we will be reaching out to our valued Guests soon.”

At the Hamilton Place Mall location, the sale does continue. But they have frozen their line.. not allowing anyone else to get in.

“We currently still have inventory and people in line can choose to wait or receive a voucher to return on another day.”
