Hershey may be known for its chocolate. (S'mores anyone?) But the town will soon be known to collectors of the American Girl doll line.

The Pennsylvania town will be the only location in the country where you can visit an American Girl outlet store, WHTM reported.

The line to get the expensive dolls and their accessories at a discount is expected to be so long that tickets will be distributed to those wanting to enter the 2,200-square-foot store at Tanger Outlets.

The dolls in the company’s historical line of characters normally run about $115 for a doll and her first book, with additional books, clothing and other accessories available for purchase.
