After Build-A-Bear busted at the seams during its "Pay Your Age Day" promotion, Hurts Donut in Tempe is hoping to bake up a similar event of its own.

"Hey Build-a-bear, we'll cut you some slack. Our team is ready to honor your deal on Monday, BUT WITH DONUTS!" the doughnut shop posted Friday on Facebook. "We are secretly hoping a lot of 200 year olds [sic] come in, but we will honor any age! 33 years old? Pay 33 cents for your donut! 17 years old? Pay 17 cents for your donut!"

The promo will run Monday, July 16 from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. at Hurts Donut's Tempe location. It is good for a single doughnut.

Let's repeat that: one doughnut, according to Blake Tendick, acting general manager at the shop.

Specifically what type of doughnuts will be available will not be determined until that day. It could be glazed, a doughnut topped with sprinkles, or a "surprise" doughnut, said Tendick. 

Non-classic doughnuts will remain at their normal prices.

He said his team is still working out the final details to ensure they have enough doughnuts to meet demand.

Within an hour of the Facebook post being published on Friday, it had already surpassed 300 shares.

Hurts Donut is known for its outrageous donut creations. They have a Cookie Monster doughnut, doughnuts topped with Cap'n Crunch and Fruit Loops and candy, like Heath bars.

Earlier Friday, they unveiled their "Unicorn Doughnut."

It is located at 2161 E. University Dr. in Tempe, near Loop 101 and University Drive.
