About 3,000 people decided to try to beat the heat Thursday by heading to the Mall of Louisiana and taking advantage of a great deal from Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Mall of Louisiana officials said about 1,500 people were allowed to remain in line, while another 1,500 were given vouchers to be able to take advantage of the deal at a later date.

Thursday only, customers could choose any furry friend and pay the dollar amount of their age.

They all had to join the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club to participate and accessories weren't included.  

Adults also got to take part in the fun. The DIY stuffed animal store said the most anyone would have to pay is $29.
