American Girl to close Overland Park location permanently

The American Girl store in Oak Park Mall is officially closing for good. In a statement Wednesday the company announced closings in Kansas City, Atlanta and Denver.

The move comes as the company is trying to accelerate it’s expanding e-commerce business. The store was the only location in both Missouri and Kansas.

American Girl had a good 10 year run here in Kansas City. I only wish they would have decided to close before I spent hundreds of dollars with them.
