These days, the rest of the market has caught up to the idea, and the brand is slipping behind. Which is why, just in time for Holiday , the brand has decided to reboot and expand the concept it helped invent. But about two decades before experiential retail became a mainstream idea, it was an experiment that a former mail-order doll company launched in it its Chicago flagship location. The company was and is American Girl — and shortly after the first American Girl Place flagship store opened, locations in New York and Los Angeles popped up to feature the Mattel-owned brand of inch historical dolls. That was a big bonus — but the stores were designed to be more than a depot of dolls. They were created as a full-tilt product showcase and a way to live the American Girl Doll lifestyle by featuring glassed-in dioramas of their characters in action, bistros for themed dining, doll salons, a doll hospital and exclusive inventory. Going to an American Girl store was designed to be more than a shopping experience; it was meant to be a significant life event for fans of the brand the average age of an American Girl doll owner is 8 to Their strategy was so effective that those flagship stores spawned a wave of boutiques and bistros — similarly designed stores at a much smaller scale — that popped up in high-end shopping malls nationwide. But the world caught up, and the American Girl experience became less a standout highlight and more of a pace with what other retailers were offering. And in recent years, its sales have suffered as a result.
