First Ever Exclusively Harry Potter Store to Open in NYC

People have been trying to capitalize off Harry Potter ever since it became a worldwide phenomenon starting in the late 90’s. You can find paraphernalia and merchandise in just about every popular, nerd-servicing retail chain that exists. But despite merchandise, both officially licensed and not, being spread all over the globe and the retail industry, there has never been a store entirely dedicated to it, until now.

The store is set to open in summer of this year and will house the largest collection of Harry Potter merchandise that has ever been under once roof or in one place, including bigger than the amount of products in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. It’s set to be a three-story floor and will also have some exclusive products that won’t be found anywhere else.

It makes sense to have the flagship store set in New York, seeing as it’s a popular, densely populated tourist city. I mean other than London, why wouldn’t it be in New York? But it’s not easy for all of us just to hop on over to New York at any time, so hopefully this one store will lead to many more in other locations in the U.S. and around the world, because you can never have too much Harry Potter magic in your life.
