If you are a Harry Potter fan you might want to get your Firebolt ready for an adventure. Warner Bros. has officially announced a massive Harry Potter themed superstore to open this summer. The good news is that you will not have to travel to Hogwarts to visit this store of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The 20,000 square-foot will be located in good old New York.
The 1st Harry Potter flagship store
Harry Potter fans will be in for a treat. This will be the world’s first Harry Potter Flagship store, and will also be the largest retail space ever for this franchise. This 20,000 square-foot, three floors of magic will have about everything a Wizard could dream of having. From books and personalized robes to Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to exclusive wands fans will have a lot to choose from.
Warner Bros. official Statement
Here is what Sarah Roots, SVP Worldwide Tours and Retail had to say about the new Superstore:
“This will be the largest dedicated Harry Potter store in the world and will become a must-visit fan destination where Harry Potter enthusiasts can engage with interactive experiences and numerous photo opportunities as they step into the magic. We are very excited to be opening in New York. It’s the ideal city in which to launch with so many dedicated Wizarding World fans, a cutting-edge retail environment and a community that embraces innovative experiences.”
