Build-A-Bear's pay your age day lead to some long lines and some upset residents around Omaha.
The store had planned to accommodate everyone, but customers were turned away and given $15 vouchers when lines got too long.
@buildabear this is a disaster. I’m not even sure it’s worth it at this point. I’m not even sure it’s worth coming back for. #nothappy #poorplanning pic.twitter.com/3HXn5w9o2H

I've already said it once today. Get it together, Omaha!

This is a whole new level of petty...find something real to be upset over instead of a stuffed animal. #getittogetherOmaha

Meanwhile, other businesses tried to urge customers to avoid the long lines and patronize other local businesses.
