We are BIG fans of Harry Potter in our house, from books and movies to LEGO and all manner of themed accessories. My 10-year-old can quote from the books at the drop of a hat, and regularly says ‘Alohomora’ when she’s unlocking the front door or ‘Lumos’ when she flicks a light switch. I think she’s not-so-secretly hoping for a Hogwarts letter in the near future…
When I saw the announcement that there is to be a Harry Potter flagship store…well, let’s just say we’re now saving for a trip to New York!

What to Expect From the Harry Potter Flagship Store
Warner Brothers announced last week that the new Harry Potter flagship store would open in Summer 2020 next to the iconic Flatiron building in New York City.
Spanning three floors and more than 20,000 sq. ft., the store will house the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products in the world.
In addition, it will offer wizarding fans from around the world a number of real retail experiences that are more in line with Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade than traditional stores. Just imagine, all the Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans and chocolate frogs you could want!
“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,” said Sarah Roots, SVP Worldwide Tours and Retail with Warner Bros.
