American Girl will open a new 15,000-square-foot retail store experience at The Florida Mall in Orlando on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014. Girls can shop for their favorite American Girl products; enjoy lunch, dinner and dessert in the Bistro; treat their doll to a new ‘do in the Doll Hair Salon; and celebrate birthdays and other special events.
The store offers a complete assortment of the company’s popular historical and contemporary dolls, along with a selection of doll outfits, accessories, “Dress Like Your Doll” clothing and a variety of the company’s best-selling books. Beyond shopping, girls can treat their dolls to a new look at the Doll Hair Salon, where they can choose from a variety of salon services from ponytails to pampering to pierced ears. And for the fashionable young fans, the store will feature a “Creativi-tees” boutique, where girls can create stylish T-shirts for themselves and their dolls. Girl-friendly events and activities based on the American Girl characters and award-winning books will also be available throughout the year.
Guests can also drop in for a relaxing meal, a decadent dessert or Anytime Tea service in the fun and casual 60-seat contemporary Bistro. Whether it’s familiar favorites like Cheesy Cheese Pizza and Best-Ever Chicken Tenders or more adventurous dishes such as Herb-Roasted with Lemon Beurre Blanc, the Bistro menu features nourishing choices with playful twists that are sure to be a hit with girls and their families.
To enhance the dining experience, favorite dolls are seated next to their owners in American Girl’s trademark “treat seats” and provided their own doll-sized menus.
The new American Girl store is also designed as the ultimate place to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions. Girls can have a Bistro party or opt for a deluxe celebration in a private party room where they can enjoy an organized game and craft, special food and cake, and party favors.
The store will be located across from XXI Forever and adjacent to Zara and like those stores, feature an entrance from the outside.
