Warner Bros. announced last week on January 9 that they have plans to open the first official Harry Potter flagship store in New York City later this year.
The store will hold a range of items from official Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise to personalized wizard robes and Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans along with a new collection of house wands exclusive to the store.
“This will be the largest dedicated Harry Potter store in the world and will become a must-visit fan destination,” Sarah Roots, the senior vice president of Warner Bros.’ Worldwide Tours division said. “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.”
The store — at 20,000 square feet — is expected to fill three stories. It’s set to open summer 2020 next to the Flatiron building at 935 Broadway.
