AUSTIN (KXAN) — There’s a new doll destination in town. American Girl is coming to Austin, at least for a few months and just in time for the holiday season.
The dolls and their accessories will soon have a new home in the Domain at 11410 Century Oaks Terrace. The 5,000-square foot store has a grand opening celebration Sept. 2, and will be open until the end of January 2018. Many doll characters have their own background and stories, ranging from the Revolutionary War-era to the Great Depression and modern day and have been favorites of collectors and children.
According to a release, girls who attend the grand opening weekend either Sept. 2 or 3 will receive a free gift and craft. Shoppers can also enter for a chance to win a 2017 Girl of the Year collection that has a Gabriela doll, accessories and a plush pet cat toy.
American Girl is owned by Mattel, Inc., which also produces Barbie.
