Fans of the Harry Potter world will love this announcement. The first official store, from the saga of the young wizard, will open its doors in New York. If there were already many ephemeral shops, this one will be permanent and will also be the largest in the world under the Harry Potter license. An excuse to treat yourself to a magical trip to New York in 2020.
It will soon be 10 years since the last volume of the Harry Potter saga was published and what can be said is that the fans' fervour towards the magical universe, straight out of J.K. Rowlling's imagination, is far from fading away. On the contrary, after numerous theme parks opened in Florida or on the outskirts of London, after a new saga The Fantastic Animals and after the opening of several ephemeral Harry Potter-themed stores, a 20,000-square-metre shop, the largest in the world, is about to open in New York. Paradise!
Personalized robes, Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, a brand new range of wands and everything in between: fans of the Harry Potter franchise will find everything they dream of, spread over three floors.
More than just a shop where visitors will be able to buy sweets, books, posters, pens and other keychains, the space will offer many activities.
The store "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," said Sarah Roots, senior vice president of Global Tours and Retail at Warner Bros.
At the moment, we already know the exact address of the store. Head to 935 Broadway, New York, USA, a strategic location a stone's throw from 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
No photos of the store have been shared, but a sketch has been posted to the store's Instagram account.
