The nation’s only American Girl outlet store is set to open this weekend in Hershey.
“As we looked through the United States, Hershey, Pennsylvania became the perfect family destination,” said Wade Opland, vice president of global retail for American Girl.
The 2,200 square foot store is located at the Tanger Outlets, next to Vera Bradley and Hanes Brands.
Shoppers can expect to find discontinued dolls as well as clothing and accessories. The store will also carry Truly Me dolls, which are personalized.
“Those plus some great bed, some great outfits that may have been discontinued that people haven’t seen. So the dolls will rotate in and out based upon the merchandising that we have,” Opland said.
The store opens at 9 a.m. Saturday.
In an effort to prevent long lines and crowding, tickets will be given out to enter the store.
The tickets will be handed out starting at 7 a.m. at the walkway by Tommy Hilfiger.
