Need a bear in a hurry? Build-A-Bear Workshop and Shipt have partnered for this beary special reason!

The bear superstore and same-day delivery service provider have announced a new partnership that brings your furry friends straight to your doorstep throughout the week before Christmas and even beyond. Not only that, Shipt and the Build-A-Bear Foundation will be donating 10,000 teddy bears to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to bring teddy bear hugs to children this holiday season.

Sharon Price John, Chief Executive Officer of Build-A-Bear Workshop, “As Build-A-Bear continues to execute our digital transformation to drive e-commerce revenue, we have continued to look for innovative solutions to fulfill the high level of order demand and deliver our furry friends to our guests. Therefore, we are pleased to partner with Shipt to provide another delivery option that can allow our furry friends to arrive in homes in time for Christmas gift-giving, especially with many areas seeing restrictions on traditional shopping activities.”

Guests can head to the Build-A-Bear Workshop’s online “The Bear Builder” configurator to start customizing their own bears ASAP, with same day delivery. Just like when you build a bear in a workshop, you can choose from sound chips, scents, clothing, and accessories.

Build-A-Bear Workshop’s same-day delivery is powered by Shipt Driven. When you place your online order, Build-A-Bear Workshop associates will package the order at your local store and it will be picked up by a Shipt Shopper and delivered to your home of your beary special someone.
