The countdown is on for American Girl’s opening in Florida.

The brand known for its lifelike dolls announced that the first American Girl store in Florida will open on Oct. 6 at The Falls in South Miami-Dade County. The new 16,000-square-foot store will be located on the east side of the mall near Bloomingdale’s.

The American Girl store will offer a full assortment of the company’s popular historical and contemporary dolls, as well as doll clothes, accessories, books and matching clothes for the doll’s owner.

American Girl has long been considered one of the leaders in experiential retail and that will continue in Miami. Girls will be able to bring their doll to the Hair Salon for a new look or enjoy the “Creativitees” boutique, where they can make matching t-shirts for themselves and their dolls. The store will also include a 60-seat Bistro offering lite meals, dessert or Anytime Tea. Dolls get to enjoy the dining experience too in their own seats with doll-sized menus.

“We’re delighted to debut a beautiful new store in Miami and welcome our American Girl fans in the area to a special place designed just for them,” says Jean McKenzie, executive vice president of American Girl.

The new American Girl store is also designed for birthday parties and other celebrations. For more information on the American Girl store at The Falls or to make dining or party reservations, call 1-877-247-5223.
