First in Drummondville, where on Saturday a shop opened its doors exclusively selling products inspired by the young wizard’s universe.

Whether the Sorting Hat sent you into Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, you can get your hands on the uniform to match at Witch and Wizardry. In addition to the official robes of all four Hogwarts houses, the more than 2,000 items in stock include wands, sweaters, stuffed animals, mugs, puzzles and more. “I really have a wide range for every budget and every taste,” assures Maggie Leroux, the store’s owner.

The one who writes with “Your witch” when posting on social networks hopes to offer visitors a unique experience.

I want people to come to the store to fall into a magical universe. I was inspired by my trip to Salem, Massachusetts.

The sets at Universal Studios Florida’s Harry Potter theme park have also influenced her, but her business is in no way a copy and paste of that. “I wanted to bring my magic to me in the world,” says the one who is enthusiastic about everything fantastic.

Witch and Wizardry is the only store in Canada that exclusively sells licensed Harry Potter products. The former secretary “worked very hard” to secure the rights from Warner Bros. “I wrote to JK Rowling so I was finally able to talk to the Warner Bros. lawyers. ‘ says the admirer of the bespectacled wizard.

A ball in Montreal

On the Montreal side, the event Harry Potter: The Great Yule Ball takes place from November to January. Inspired by the elegant soiree of the Triwizard Tournament in the fourth book in the series, the celebrations will include dancing, of course, but also “enchanting performances”, themed drinks and canapés, and a market. Tickets for this activity for children aged 12 and over are available now.
