Get ready Harry Potter fans, the largest flagship Harry Potter store is set to open in New York on June 3rd. The three floor, 21,000 sq. ft building will house the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products under one roof. Inside, fans will find 15 different theme areas with magical elements — many of which aren’t available at any other location — including an interactive wand table where you can take your wand on a test run.
First look at the Harry Potter Store in New York City
“We at Warner Bros. are in a very uniquely privileged position to work directly with the filmmakers,” Durrant reveals, though he wouldn’t specify who they worked with. “Thanks to this collaboration, we’re bringing authentic props that come directly from the films and also authentic recreations. From the Harry Potter films, you’ll be able to find Harry’s authentic wand on display, as well as Ron’s, Hermoine’s, and Dumbledore’s wands. We have the original Golden Snitch, Harry’s broomstick, Tom Riddle’s diary with a basilisk’s fang in the middle of it, and many other items.”
The new Harry Potter themed store is also gearing up to have two virtual reality rooms. “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.'”
The new store is definitely a must-see for any Harry Potter fan. It’s far more than a shopping experience. The store is located in New York near the Flatiron Building at 935 Broadway. Fans can also visit the online shop for official merchandise at HarryPotterShop.com.
