The 9,500-square-foot store is offering an unforgettable shopping experience and engaging activities for girls, such as designing a doll-sized T-shirt or giving their dolls a new hairstyle in the signature Doll Hair Salon.
“We’re thrilled to bring this exciting retail concept to the legions of American Girl fans in Kansas City and the surrounding areas, ” says Ellen L. Brothers, president of American Girl. “The new store allows us to provide even more girls with a fun way to enjoy the American Girl experience.”
The American Girl Kansas City store will feature a complete assortment of the company’s popular historical and contemporary dolls, along with a wide selection of doll outfits, accessories, and 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 their dolls. Girl-friendly events and activities based on the American Girl characters and award-winning books will also be available throughout the year.
The store is located in the spacious Oak Park Mall.
