Girls in the Miami area will soon have a new reason — and place —to celebrate as American Girl unveils its new retail experience at The Falls on Oct. 6.
The new 16,000-square-foot retail site, located on the east side of the mall near Bloomingdale’s, features a fun, casual environment where girls and their family members and friends can shop for their favorite American Girl products, enjoy lunch and dinner, or an unforgettable dessert in the Bistro, treat their doll to a new ’do in the Doll Hair Salon, and celebrate birthdays or other special events.
“We’re delighted to debut a beautiful new store in Miami and welcome our American Girl fans in the area to a special place designed just for them,” said Jean McKenzie, executive vice president of American Girl. “Whether they’re celebrating a birthday, shopping for the latest American Girl products, or sharing a meal in the Bistro, girls and their families will find that the new store promises to provide a lasting memory they’ll treasure for years to come.”
The American Girl store will feature 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 who want to treat their dolls to a new look can visit the Doll Hair Salon, where they can choose from a variety of salon services — from ponytails to pampering to pierced ears. And, for 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 awardwinning books also will be available throughout the year.
Guests can drop in for a relaxing meal, a decadent dessert, or for Anytime Tea service in the 60-seat casual and contemporary Bistro. Whether it’s familiar favorites like Cheesy Cheese Pizza and Best-Ever Chicken Tenders, or more adventurous dishes such as Mediterranean Salad with Herb Vinaigrette, the Bistro menu features nourishing choices with playful twists that are sure to be a hit with girls and their parents. 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 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.
