What the Store Has to Offer

In addition to a full line of American Girl features dolls with impressive back stories, like Grace Thomas, described as a “big-ideas girl who makes baking her business,” the Castleton Square store will also carry a line of carefully thought out products that help bring your child’s imagination to life, including accessories, clothing, furniture and bakeware. Patrons will also have access to:

  • -Craft workshops, which will run until the store closes on Jan 31. Crafting workshops will be announced on the American Girl website.

And a trip to an American Girl Store just wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Doll Salon

The American Girl Doll shop at Castleton Square Mall will feature a Doll Hair Salon, where shoppers can take their dolls for new hair do’s. Have an American Girl Doll whose hair has seen better days? Stylists are on hand to help fix messy and matted hair. Doll owners can also visit the shop to have their dolls ears pierced.

We imagine there will be lots of little girls making some very long wish lists at the Castleton Square Mall American Girl Store this holiday season! Happy Shopping!
