A temporary American Girl store is set to celebrate its grand opening Oct. 7 and 8 at Ross Park Mall and will be there through Jan. 28, 2018.

The nearly 3,500-square-foot space will feature an assortment of American Girl dolls, outfits and accessories, along with a selection of the company's best-selling historical and contemporary fiction, advice and activity books.

During opening weekend celebration, those in attendance will receive a free gift and craft (while supplies last). Shoppers can enter for a chance to win a 2017 Girl of Year collection featuring the 18-inch Gabriela doll and book, accessories and a pet cat plush.

American Girl is a premium brand for girls and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel, Inc.

Tickets are required for both opening weekend days. Beginning one hour before store opening both days, American Girl will distribute entrance tickets for that day. Lines for store entry tickets will not be permitted to form until after 7 a.m. both days.

This is the second year the shop has come to Ross Park Mall.

Hours for opening weekend are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 7 and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 8

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
