American Girl is opening it’s boutique inside Indigo & Chapters in Vancouver, Canada this weekend, but technically it is already open! The week before an American Girl store has its Grand Opening, they have what is called “soft launch” where the store is open to the public and the staff gets a chance to “practice” before the big crowds show up.

American Girl Canada Vancouver

Linda from Linda’s Chatty Blog was one of the first to visit the Vancouver store and has posted quite a few photos and details on her site.  While the store is smaller than the ones in the US, it looks like it has most of the essentials, including the hair salon.

They are even ready to get social – #indigoamericangirl for those of you who get to visit.

I hope Jess hashtagged her photos – she looks like she had a great day.

So, go visit Linda’s Chatty Blog to see all her photos. If you visit any of the new American Girl stores, feel free to send your photos in to me at
