If you're the parent of a little lady, then you're likely all too familiar with the enduring triumph of American Girl. Nine-year-olds and beyond have been obsessed with the company's life-like dolls for decades, which is why The Grove's store is always jam-packed with superfans. Caruso Affiliated is one smart business, because they've invited American Girl to the outdoor shopping center's Glendale counterpart, Americana at Brand, for the holidays.
Set to open on Saturday, October 17th, the temporary shop will feature "a curated assortment of the popular American Girl dolls, books, and accessories, along with the signature Doll Hair Salon." Tell all your mom friends!
