We are BIG fans of Hogwarts in our house, from books and Harry Potter party food to movies, LEGO and all manner of themed accessories. My 11-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.
In Jan 2020, when we saw the announcement that there would be a Harry Potter flagship store…well, let’s just say we’re now saving for a trip to New York! Understandably, things were delayed – but now, this first-of-its-kind store will open on June 3rd 2021.

What to Expect from the Harry Potter Flagship Store
Warner Brothers’ new Harry Potter flagship store is nearly a year delayed, but will take up home 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.
