Australia's Largest Harry Potter Store Is Set To Open This Week

Australia's Largest Harry Potter Store Is Set To Open This Week

While the Harry Potter books stopped a few years ago, it hasn't stopped millions of people diving into the world of Hogwarts and hearing about 'The Boy Who Lived'.

It's a beautiful experience to have, however it's even better being able to bring the characters and objects into the real world.

But, if you absolutely love Harry Potter, then you'll be pleased to know that the largest store in Australia related to the franchise will be opening in Melbourne this week.

According to Channel 7, the store consumes 500-square metres at Myer in the CBD and even has a trolley heading into Platform 9 3/4.

Myer's chief customer officer Geoff Ikin said: "[It] will create a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in Australia."

You'll be able to buy toys, stationary, costumes, homewares and apparel all related to characters and creatures from the books, as well as a collection of 20 different wands specific to people from the series.

So if you ever wanted to cast some spells like Hermione or Ron then you can buy their wands and do just that.

While there are loads of people and places that celebrate the world of Harry Potter, there are others that think it's the work of the devil. Seriously.

St. Edward Church and School in Nashville, Tennessee has banned Harry Potter novels from being checked out of the library as they 'risk conjuring evil spirits'.

Reverend Dan Reehil, a pastor at St. Edward Church and School, told The Tennessean: "These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception.

"The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text."

Reehil stated that he had consulted several exorcists in the United States and Rome and they recommended removing the books from students' possession.
