Harry Potter flagship store to open in NYC

FLATIRON, Manhattan — Wizards and warlocks, rejoice! The magic of the Wizarding World is coming to the Big Apple this summer.

That’s right. Warner Bros. announced the world’s first official “Harry Potter” flagship store will open next to the iconic Flatiron Building at 935 Broadway.

The store will house the largest collection of products from “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” — from personalized robes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to brand new house wands with a design exclusive to the New York location.

(Now is the time to figure out which house you’d be sorted in.)

The magical store will span three stories and over 20,000-square feet. Will there be dragons and floating lights? We'll have to wait and see.

“We are very excited to be opening in New York. 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,” SVP Worldwide Tours and Retail Sarah Roots said in a statement.

The flagship store is the latest addition to the franchise based off the novel series brought to life by author J.K. Rowling.
