Take a lit­tle magic with you when you fly

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

PAS­SEN­GERS have been caught up in the mag­i­cal world of Harry Pot­ter at Heathrow Air­port.

Hun­dreds of shop­pers have passed through the doors of The Harry Pot­ter shop which opened its door at Ter­mi­nal 5 last week.

And with more than 200 prod­ucts from J.K. Rowl­ing’s Wiz­ard­ing World, the Gazette can re­veal the top five items that have had Mug­gles reach­ing for the shelves.

The much-an­tic­i­pated launch last Wed­nes­day (Novem­ber 16) co­in­cided with the re­lease of Warner Bros pre­quel Fan­tas­tic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Top 5 lines are: 1. Ber­tie Botts Ev­ery Flavour Beans & Plat­form 9 3/4 Choco­late 2. Dobby the House Elf and Hed­wig the Owl Plush 3. All Harry Pot­ter and Fan­tas­tic Beasts Books 4. Wands 5. House scarf, hats and gloves

With Christ­mas fast ap­proach­ing and peo­ple fly­ing to be with loved ones over the fes­tive sea­son, it will be the per­fect one-stop shop for stock­ing fillers and presents to put a smile on the face of Harry Pot­ter fans.

The 600 sq ft store also stocks newly re­leased prod­ucts from the all-new ad­ven­ture film re­leased on Novem­ber 18, as well as col­lectibles, gifts, nov­el­ties and sou­venirs from Plat­form 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Sta­tion and the West End hit play “Harry Pot­ter and The Cursed Child Parts One and Two”.

The shop is lo­cated after se­cu­rity at the Bri­tish Air­ways ter­mi­nal and will be open seven days a week from 5.30am to 10pm.

It is an­tic­i­pated it will be vis­ited by more than 16 mil­lion pas­sen­gers com­ing through Ter­mi­nal 5 each year as they to travel around the globe.

Jonathan Sands, chief ex­ec­u­tive of The Harry Pot­ter Shop, said: “We are proud to be open­ing The Harry Pot­ter shop at Heathrow Ter­mi­nal 5, in part­ner­ship with Warner Bros.

“Con­sumer Prod­ucts, and look for­ward to bring­ing some of our magic to the UK’s most iconic air­port.”

Harry Pot­ter is loved across the globe and what bet­ter place to en­joy gift and sou­venirs from the Wiz­ard­ing World be­fore our pas­sen­gers fly to the other side of the world.

“We hope our cus­tomers en­joy ev­ery­thing the new store has to of­fer as they take a lit­tle magic with them.”
