I am normally the type of person that is all about ‘sweater weather’ but I am counting down the days until summer. That’s because the largest ever Harry Potter store is set to open along with a themed sidewalk cafe.
The flagship store is set to open near the Flatiron building in Manhattan.
According to a press release, “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.”
This new flagship location will be 20,000 square feet and span three floors. It will house some of the same merchandise you can find at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, like chocolate frogs or wands from Ollivanders. But there will also be some exclusive merchandise that can only be found at this new location.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the store wants to have dragons outside, as well as flagpoles designed to look like wands, but there are restrictions on what can or cannot be modified on the outside of the building.
