For those of you who are not looking to stock up on any merchandise, don't worry! The store will also have its very own "Platform 9 3/4" and it's the only one in Australia. Now, there's no need to go all the way to King's Cross for that photo op ? In case you're hoping to catch the Australian theatre production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, you can get your tickets here too. Not to mention that the cast will be performing a short excerpt from the play on the store's opening day too.
