American Girl will be hosting a drawing for a free Gabriela McBride Girl of the Year doll and book, accessories, and pet. There will be one giveaway on Saturday and one giveaway on Sunday. Customers do not need to be present to win.

“Given our success in experiential retail over the past 18 years, we are excited to reopen a specialty boutique in a top market, such as Raleigh, and a premier retail destination like Crabtree Valley Mall,” Spanos said in an email. “With millions of visitors annually, Crabtree Valley Mall is Raleigh’s most sought after retail destination for both locals and tourists. Plus, the mall’s upscale mix of retail and restaurants is a great fit for our brand and provides us with an amazing opportunity to introduce American Girl products and our retail concept to locals and tourists traveling to Raleigh.”
