Potterheads will be excited to know that the new Harry Potter store will be opening in just a few months!
The magic of Harry Potter and his fellow classmates and friends are coming to New York!
The new store will be located near the Flatiron Building at 935 Broadway.
The official grand opening will be on June 3rd, so mark your calendars!
“It’s been a really tough period in people’s lives and by opening the Harry Potter store in the heart of New York City, we’re looking forward to bringing some magic back into people’s lives,” Karl Durrant, VP and General Manager of Warner Bros. Retail Destinations tells EW exclusively.Karl Durrant
The three story building will house the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products under one gift shop roof.
Many of the magical items inside the building are exclusive to the New York building and are not available at any other location; for example, an interactive wand table where you can take your wand on a test run!
In addition to some exclusive magic, the Harry Potter New York building is the only gift shop where you can personalize wands outside of Ollivander’s.
Durrant’s team is continuing to work on bringing new experiences in the near future for the Wizarding World and are already working on a virtual reality experience where fans can fly into new adventures.
“We have two virtual reality experiences will be able to reveal more about soon,” he shares. “One will take you on a journey around Hogwarts called ‘Chaos at Hogwarts’ and another that will put you on a broomstick where you can fly over the River Thames in London called ‘Wizards Take Flight.'”Karl Durrant
Keep in mind that most of the magic can only be purchased in store while only limited items be can bought online.
